​​​​Filling:
3 cups, beaten
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups sweetened flake coconut
In a medium saucepan, whisk together milk and eggs so they are completely incorporated. Add the sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Cook over medium heat, whisking often, until bubbles form at the edge and mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. . Remove from heat and add vanilla. Stir in coconut. Pour into cooled crust. Place in refrigerator for a few hours, or until chilled

Whipped Cream Topping:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 T. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Make sure not to over-beat, cream will then become lumpy and butter-like.
Spread whipped cream on top of pie.

Sprinkle 1 cup of coconut on a baking sheet and bake for a few minutes to a light golden brown color. Let cool and sprinkle coconut flakes on top of whip cream.

Enjoy!
