Coconut Cream Pie

 

 

As it’s summer, my sister is home from boarding school which means her bossiness and sassiness is in full swing.

I was initially going to make some crunchy caramel popcorn (which i’ll upload soon) but was ordered (yes, ordered) to make a coconut cream pie for my doting sister. Lovely.

Coconut isn’t my favourite flavour but the custard filling and hand-whipped cream are irresistable. Make sure to buy a good store-bought pie shell or if you’re brave enough, make your own.

Also make sure to keep an eye on the coconut flakes as they burn quicker than you think. Enjoy!DSC_0240
