Yummy, Creamy Coconut Pie

There is one pie I adore, but I never make as I am the only one in the house who likes it. In other words, if it is made, I must eat the whole thing. I am rather partial to the clothing I have in my closet, so I refrain from cooking things only I enjoy for this reason. :)

But today I just had to make one of these delish pies to enjoy! :) I rationalized that I had one pie shell left in the freezer so I had to make 'something'. As I had all the ingredients on hand -how fortuitous- then yay!! coconut cream pie!

Coconut Cream Pie
* 3 cups half-and-half
* 2 eggs
* 3/4 cup white sugar
* 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup flaked coconut, toasted
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 (9 inch, deep dish) pie shell, baked
* 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed

In a medium saucepan, combine half-and-half, eggs, sugar, flour and salt. Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in 3/4 cup of the coconut and the vanilla extract. Pour into pie shell and chill 2 to 4 hours, or until firm.
Top with whipped topping, and with remaining 1/4 cup of coconut.
*To toast coconut, spread in an ungreased pan and bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes, or until golden brown.
