Coconut Cream Cheese Pie
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 cups milk
  • 15 oz can Sweetened Coconut Cream ( or omit and use 3 cups of milk)
  • 4 packages ( 3½ oz size) vanilla instant pudding mix
  • ¾ teaspoon coconut extract
  • 16 ounces Cool Whip
  • 7 ounces shredded sweetened coconut
  1. Roll the pie crust to fit a 9½ inch pie plate. Bake as directed for an unfilled pie crust.
  2. Set the pie crust aside to cool and reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees.
  3. Combine the cream cheese, milk and coconut cream in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer about 4 minutes until no lumps remain. Beat in the pudding mix and coconut extract until well blended.
  4. Fold in 1 cup of Cool Whip into the cream cheese mixture. Spoon into the cooled pie crust and top with the remaining Cool Whip.
  5. Toast the coconut by spreading it on a baking sheet and baking at 350 degrees until lightly browned - about 8 minutes. Stir occasionally while baking to prevent burning.
  6. Sprinkle the toasted coconut over the pie. Chill until ready to serve.
