Homemade Coconut Cream Pie Recipe!

A big slice of this creamy coconut pie can complete an elegant or a country home cooked meal.

You can top the pie with meringue or whipped cream. It's a favorite dessert in the South.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup flour
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 3 cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 1-3 ½ ounce can flaked coconut
  • 1-9-inch pie shell
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ½ cup sugar


  1. In a medium saucepan combine sugar, salt and flour; stir in milk. Cook over medium-low heat, stir constantly until thickened. Reduce heat to low and cook 2 more minutes; stirring constantly, remove from heat.
  2. Beat egg yolks slightly; gradually add 1 cup of hot mixture into the yolks. Return egg yolk mixture to the saucepan and bring to a slow boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat; add butter and 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract. Mix well. Add 1 cup of the coconut. Pour into baked pie crust.
  4. Beat egg whites, ½ teaspoon vanilla, cream of tartar, and sugar in a medium mixing bowl until you have a stiff meringue.
  5. Spread over hot filling.
  6. Sprinkle remaining coconut over top of meringue.
  7. Bake in a preheated 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool.
  8. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.


  • Instead of topping with meringue and baking, you may use whipped cream or cool whip and omit baking.
  • I use refrigerated pie crust you buy at grocery store.

I do love coconut cream although the coconut tends to raise my potassium level somewhat. Still we all have to die of something.

Thank you and kind regards Peter
