This Easy Coconut Cream Pie is dreamy and creamy, filled with a Coconut Pudding filling topped off with cool whip and toasted coconut! It’s a classic that is hard to beat!
No matter what the occasion this pie is always a hit! Our family is a little bit nontraditional at the holidays. Our table is not always full of pumpkin and pecan pie. It’s a big confession, you may have caught on my Instagram Story, and this southerner may get a bit of flack for this. But hey – I feed my people what they want!
And there are times when I do put out my pecan squares – so y’all don’t yell at me too much 😉 They are divine – I will try to have those up in time for your Christmas planning!
Summer, Spring, Fall or Winter we love this creamy pie! It’s a classic after all and you can serve it any time! And there is always something chocolate on our dessert table too! So all is well in the world right??4
It’s so EASY – because it calls for a pre-made pie shell, and all the ingredients are readily available. They come together for the most lusciously creamy pie. Plus there are always a few sighs when someone takes a bite into this dream of a pie! Good sighs that is!
