Instructions
 

Graham Cracker Crust

  • In a food processor, pulse down graham crackers to a fine crumb mixture. Pour in large mixing bowl and add the melted butter, brown sugar, and pinch of salt. Combine until just until crumb mixture is no longer dry.
  • Pour crumb mixture into 10 in pie pan and pat down until all the sides and bottom are covered. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Whipped cream

  • In a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, whisk together the heavy cream, confectioner's sugar, vanilla and pinch of salt. Mix on a medium-high speed until stiff peaks form.

Toasted coconut lime pie

  • Preheat oven to 325°. In a medium bowl, beat sweetened condensed milk and 4 egg yolks until fluffy (about 4 minutes). Add the fresh lime juice and zest and beat for an addtional 3 minutes. Pour into prepared pie crust and bake for 17 minutes or until center is set. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.
  • Prepare the coconut layer while the lime layer is baking. In a large saucepan, whisk remaining 4 egg yolks and granulated sugar until fluffy. Add the cornstarch and salt and whisk until blended completely. Add in the whole milk and mix together.
  • Set saucepan over medium-high heat and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens to a pudding like consistency. The filling should have big, thick bubbles when it's done and will feel much thicker when it is mixed. This takes about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla, butter and ¾ cup of the toasted coconut.
  • Let the filling cool completely. Cover with plastic wrap so a skin does not form on top. When cool, mound over the top of the pie and then top with whipped cream. Refrigerate for 4 hours. Garnish with addtional toasted coconut and lime zest! Serve and enjoy.
