Heather's Coconut Cream Pie

This recipe is one I found on Heather Vogel Frederick's website and it sounded yummy. Here it is!

Coconut Cream Pie
Heather’s Cafe — Cannon Beach, Oregon
1 c. heavy cream
3 c. milk (don’t use less than 2%)
1-1/4 c. sugar
6 egg yolks
4 T. cornstarch
Pinch of salt
1 T. vanilla
1 T. butter
3-4 cups coconut
Baked pie crust
Whipped cream
In a bowl, mix 1/2 c. milk, salt, egg yolks, and cornstarch.
Bring remaining cream, milk, and sugar to a gentle boil.  Pour a bit slowly into the egg mixture, stir, then slowly pour egg mixture back into the heated milk (the point here is to avoid scrambled eggs).  Return to medium low heat and stir until thickened and boiling (small bubbles, not full rolling boil).  Boil for about four minutes.
Remove from heat; stir in butter and vanilla.  Add 3 cups coconut (more or less, depending on your preference).  Cool.  Pour into baked and cooled pie crust.  Top with whipped cream and toasted coconut flakes.
Heather said that she posted this recipe for National Pie Day which I totally missed out on. Drat. >.<
