The best coconut cream pie ever!!

Top Review by c1jarratt_1483772

This is a delicious pie. I, too, had problems with a runny filling. It bubbled and was thick - but after putting in the oven for the merengue to brown - and when it cooled in the fridge until the next day - the filling was now loose? II'n not sure if it was the merengue cooking or if it loosens after cooking. Next time I will use more cornstarch. I also used 2% milk - perhaps that was the cause?
