TWD- Toasted Coconut-Custard Pie

I loved toasted coconut. Girl Scout Samoas are about the greatest thing ever. My mom makes truffles covered in toasted coconut and I could eat a million of them. So I was excited to make this recipe. I don't have a tart pan so I made a 9" pie.
A word of caution: don't leave coconut unattended under the broiler. Fire in my mom's oven. My brave brother took the on fire coconut an threw it in the snow. Take two was toasted in a pan on the stove.
This is a great, quick recipe that yields a creamy, smooth custard filling. You could omit the coconut and use bananas for a great banana cream.
You can check out Beryl's blog for the recipe!
