Ingredients

  • 1
    Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
  • 2
    cups half-and-half
  • 1
    cup coconut milk (not cream of coconut)
  • 2
    eggs
  • 1/2
    cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4
    teaspoon salt
  • 2
    teaspoons vanilla
  • Blue food color, if desired
  • 1
    cup coconut, toasted
  • 1
    can (8 oz) crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 1/2
    cups whipping cream
  • 1/3
    cup sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 450°F. Bake and cool pie crust in 9-inch pie plate as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell.
  • 2
    In 2-quart saucepan, mix half-and-half, coconut milk, eggs, 3/4 cup sugar, the flour and salt. Heat to boiling over medium-low to medium heat, stirring constantly with whisk. When mixture has thickened, remove from heat.
  • 3
    Press mixture through strainer into large bowl. Stir in 1 teaspoon of the vanilla and blue food color to desired color. Add coconut and pineapple.
  • 4
    In large bowl, beat cream with electric mixer on low speed, gradually increasing speed until cream begins to thicken. Add 1/3 cup sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until cream holds its shape. Transfer to another bowl; set aside.
  • 5
    Spread coconut mixture in pie crust. Top with whipped cream.
  • 6
    Refrigerate 3 hours before serving.

  • Cover the top of the pie completely with the whipped cream so the color underneath does not show and ruin the surprise!
  • For even more Hawaiian flair, add a few teaspoons coconut-flavored rum to the whipped cream.
  • To toast coconut, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium-low heat 6 to 14 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
  • Garnish with additional toasted coconut if desired.
