Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Bake the pie shell according to package instructions. Let cool.

Spread coconut onto a baking sheet.

Place in oven and toast 7-10 minutes. Let cool.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat add the cream.

Next add the eggs, white sugar, flour and salt.

Bring to a boil stirring constantly.

Remove from the heat and stir in 3/4 cup coconut and vanilla extract.

Carefully pour into baked pie shell.

Let the pie chill in the fridge for 2-4 hours so that the cream filling will set.

Top the pie with a whipped cream.

I think in a cream pie like this you need to make a nice tall layer of topping.

Sprinkle the top of the pie with the remaining coconut.

I don’t even like coconut and this pie is to die for. So smooth and creamy it just melt in your mouth.
