French Silk Coconut Cream Pie

Oops.  Sometimes I find pictures I took a few weeks a year ago and forgot to post.  This marriage of chocolate and coconut cream pies comes from Dorothy at Crazy for Crust, and was a big hit at our Thanksgiving table last year. 

If you have problems deciding what kind of pie to have, this recipe is for you.  Not that I'm limiting you to eating a single flavor of pie or anything.  But honestly, it's way easier if you can knock out two flavors in one pop. And then you have even more room for 5 other kinds of pie.

Thanksgiving is alllll about the pie.  Can I get an 'Amen'?

French Silk Coconut Cream Pie
Recipe from Crazy for Crust
For the Crust
-30 Oreo cookies
-1/2 cup sliced almonds
-1/3 cup coconut
-6 Tablespoons butter, melted

For the Filling
-2 2/3 cups whole milk
-4 large egg yolks
-1/2 cup sugar
-1/3 cup cornstarch
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
-1 cup sweetened shredded coconut

-Whipped cream, chocolate shavings, or additional coconut for garnishing

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine Oreos, almonds, and coconut in a food processor and pulse to very fine crumbs.

In a bowl combine crumbs with melted butter. Pour into a 9 inch pie plate and press along sides and bottom. Bake for 20 minutes.

In a medium saucepan, combine the milk, egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, and salt. Whisk constantly for about 5 minutes, until mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat.

Divide the pudding mixture in half and pour into separate bowls.  (One will become the chocolate layer, the other will become the coconut layer.)

Stir melted chocolate into one of the bowls. Stir coconut into the other.

Pour the coconut pudding over the bottom of the crust. Top with the chocolate pudding.  Spread gently only if needed so you don't disturb the layers.

Cover pie tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight, or until completely set.  It will take at least 2-4 hours. 

Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, or toasted coconut.
