Step 1: Place the pie inside the oven and bake according to the package direction. Once done, remove from the oven and allow it to cool completely.
Step 2: In a double boiler, combine the milk and light cream. As a substitute, if you cannot find light cream is mixing 3 tablespoons of melted butter in room temperature and a scant cup of whole milk.
Step 3: Add in the sugar and bring the mixture to a boil.
Step 4: In a small bowl, stir well 2 tablespoons of wald water and cornstarch.
Step 5: Beat the egg yolks in another bowl until they are light.
Step 6: Stir in the corn starch mixture into the yolks and mix thoroughly.
Step 7: Pour the egg mixture in the double boiler and cook for about 5 minutes while constantly stirring.
Step 8: After 5 minutes remove the boiler from the heat and add in the vanilla and coconut. Stir well and allow the mixture to sit for 30 minutes.
Step 9: Then, pour the mixture into the prepared crust. Place inside the fridge to chill, covered with plastic wrap for 30 minutes or until set.
Step 10: When ready to serve, remove the plastic wrap and cover the top of the pie with whipped cream. Sprinkle with coconut flakes if desired. Enjoy!
