Here is another American classic, this one filled with pastry cream-like pudding laced with sweetened shredded coconut. To give this pie an intense coconut flavor, use coconut milk to make the pudding. Don’t buy the sweetened coconut milk that goes into a pina colada. Look for unsweetened coconut milk, usually from Thailand. The cans typically hold about 14 ounces, so you will need to buy 2 cans for this recipe.
