Coconut Cream Pie
Preheat your oven to 325°F. In a food processor, add the cookies, then pulse them until fine crumbs, add the butter and coconut while the machine is still mixing, and then pulse them all together until combined. Transfer the crumbs into a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan, then press them nicely on the bottom and sides of the pan to form the crust, and put it in the preheated oven. Allow them to bake for about 20 minutes, then, set them aside, and let them cool completely while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
Place a medium-sized saucepan on a stove over medium heat, then add the coconut, milk, shredded coconuts, sugar, and salt, and then bring them to a simmer. Stir them all together until the sugar has been dissolved, then in a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and cornstarch until smooth, and then gradually add a ladleful of hot coconut mixture into the eggs while whisking continuously.
Add more hot coconut milk mixture, then give them a good whisk, and gradually pour it back into the saucepan while whisking consistently. Bring the mixture to a boil until thickened, then turn off the heat, add the butter and vanilla, and whisk them together until incorporated. Pour the cream mixture into the cooled pie shell, then cover it with plastic wrap, and place it in the refrigerator to chill and set for at least 3 hours.
Place a pan on a stove over medium heat, then add the coconut, and toast them until nice and golden. Turn off the heat, then transfer the toasted coconut to a plate, and allow them to cool down completely. In a cold bowl, add the heavy cream, then beat it until thick and creamy, add the sugar and vanilla, and then continue to beat until soft peaks form. Put it on top of the chilled pie, then sprinkle the toasted coconut all over them, and serve. Enjoy!
