PIE CRUST

1 box Jiffy Pie Crust Mix

 

FILLING

2/3 Cup Sugar

3 Tablespoons Cornstarch

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

3 Cups Milk

3 Egg Yolks (Slightly beaten)

3/4 Cup Moist Shredded Coconut

1 Tablespoon Butter

1 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS

Whipped Cream, Fruit

Makes 8 servings

DIRECTIONS:

STEP 1: Prepare and bake pie crust in a 9″ pie dish. (I use Jiffy Pie Crust Mix and follow directions on back of box. Not every grocery store in my area carries it so sometimes I have to make a special trip to a different store to buy it. But, it is worth it because it is really good and easy to make. I have actually found it at Dollar Tree at certain times of the year in particularly autumn.)

STEP 2: Mix 2/3 Cup Sugar, 3 Tablespoons Cornstarch, 1/2 Teaspoon Salt and gradually stir in 3 Cups Milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat.

STEP 3: Gradually stir at least 1/2 hot mixture into 3 slightly beaten egg yolks. Then blend the other 1/2 into hot mixture. Boil 1 minute more, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

STEP 4: Blend in 3/4 Cup Moist Shredded Coconut, 1 Tablespoon Butter and 1 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla while mixture is sitll hot.

STEP 5: Pour into baked pie crust.

OPTIONAL: Top with whipped cream and your favorite fruit when serving 🙂
