1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon almond extract, if desired

1 cup sweetened flaked coconut


1 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream, chilled

1 tablespoon powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut, toasted

1/3 cup mini chocolate candy eggs

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine all crust ingredients in large bowl; mix until combined. Press into ungreased 9-inch pie plate. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  3. STEP 3

    Bake crust 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Whisk coconut milk, milk and eggs together in medium bowl. Set aside.

  5. STEP 5

    Whisk 1 cup granulated sugar and cornstarch together in 4-quart saucepan. Slowly whisk in milk mixture. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Boil 1-2 minutes or until mixture has thickened. Continue whisking. Remove from heat. Add 1/4 cup butter, salt and almond extract, stirring until butter has melted. Add 1 cup coconut.

  6. STEP 6

    Pour into prepared crust. Cover with plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 3 hours or until set and chilled. 

  7. STEP 7

    Beat chilled whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla in chilled bowl at high speed, scraping bowl often, until stiff peaks form. Spread whipped cream in center of pie. Sprinkle with toasted coconut. Fill center with chocolate candy eggs. Serve immediately.

Malted Coconut Cream Pie with Chocolate Crumb Crust

Follow the directions exactly as listed but swap out these ingredients: use chocolate wafer cookie crumbs instead of shortbread crumbs in the crust. For the filling, skip the almond extract and add 3 tablespoons malted milk powder in with the sugar and cornstarch when making the pudding. And for the whipped cream topping, skip the vanilla and add 3 tablespoons of malted milk powder in with the powdered sugar.

Tip #1

To toast coconut, spread coconut in single layer on baking sheet with shallow sides. Bake at 325°F, tossing occasionally, about 10 minutes or until very lightly browned.

Tip #2

If not serving immediately, do not top with candy eggs (the colors will seep into the whipped cream). Place eggs onto pie right before serving.
