This cream pie is a marriage of a few things on this blog. It starts with my favorite Oreo Crust recipe, and I used Golden Oreos. That crust recipe works with ANY flavor Oreo and I think that the sweet vanilla taste of a Golden Oreo pairs perfect with coconut. You could also use a shortbread crust or a graham cracker crust, if you prefer – all of my cookie crust recipes are no bake. If you’re going to the trouble of making a pudding pie, why on earth would you want to bake it? (It’s why I love my Coconut Banana Cream Pie recipe, but I often make it with a cookie crust instead of pastry!)
The filling of the pie is Instant Coconut Pudding Mix. I’ve seen that flavor at 99% of grocery stores, but if you can’t find it, substitute vanilla and add 1 teaspoon of coconut extract. Then you stir in shredded coconut and pour it into the crust. Let it set, then you top it with fluffy whipped cream and tons of toasted coconut.
If you’re not sure how to make toasted coconut, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. I just posted my first Cooking Basics video tutorial, and it’s all about making toasted coconut.
The hardest part about making this coconut cream pie recipe is not eating it all.
