Coconut Cream Pie

I'm sure which pie is my favorite Lemon or Coconut but I made a coconut pie on Sunday. I love a cooked from scratch coconut pie. I'm not sure where this recipe came from but it my favorite.

Coconut Cream Pie

1 refridgerated pie crust
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c cornstarch
2 c half-n-half
4 egg yolks
1/3 c BUTTER
1 c coconut
1-1/2 tea vanilla
2 c whipping cream
1/3 c sugar
1 t vanilla

prepare pie crust according to package directions and set aside.
combine sugar and cornstarch in boiling pot and mix. combine half-n-half and egg yolks in a bowl and mix with a fork. add egg mixture to the sugar mixture in the pot. you have to stir constantly when cooking or it will burn before ya know it. cook over medium till it boils and boil for one minute. watch carefully as it thickens and it will thicken quickly. remove from heat and quickly add butter, coconut and vanilla and stir. cover the mixture in the pot with plastic wrap pressing right on down to touch the filling. this will prevent it from getting a film over it. let sit for 30 minutes away from heat. then add to prepared pie crust. let sit inside fridge for 30 minutes.
prepare topping - add whipping cream to a bowl and beat at high speed till soft and puffy/creamy - add sugar and flavoring and continue to beat till stiff peaks form. spread on top of pie.
