Cooking Time25 min



  • 1 baked pastry crust
  • For the Filling:
  • 1 package vanilla instant pudding, plus milk required per package instructions
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • For the Topping:
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons shredded coconut


  1. Prepare and bake a single crust pastry and allow to cool, or use a pre-made pie crust.

  2. In a medium bowl prepare pudding mix according to package directions, whisking in the coconut extract and vanilla. When the pudding is smooth, stir in the shredded coconut and set aside for 10 minutes to firm up.

  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In bowl of electric mixer beat egg whites until foamy, then add the cream of tartar and mix to dissolve. With machine running, add sugar slowly. Stir in vanilla and continue to whip until very firm peaks form.

  4. Spoon filling into the baked pie shell. Spoon topping onto pie filling and swirl with the back of a spoon or spatula, pushing the edges to touch the crust all around. Sprinkle with coconut and bake for about 7 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Watch carefully to be sure the coconut does not burn.

  5. Allow to stand at room temperature for 1 hour before serving or chill, lightly covered with plastic wrap, up to 1 day before serving.

Can you use sugar-free pudding mix for this recipe? I am trying to keep the calories down some, but I know that flavor is not always something you can compromise. Some recipes will work well with sugar-free ingredients where others might not. I always check in case someone has already tried it.

The filling was sweet and delicious. I loved the coconut flakes in the pie and the topping.

If you like coconut, this is the pie for you! It's rich and so creamy. I love the custard-like filling, matched with a flaky crust. Yum!

My favorite part of this pie was the large coconut flakes hidden inside. What a delightful surprise! A very sweet dessert, so I'd reserve it for special occasions :)

Rich, creamy, and delicious - with a phenomenal crust!

This pie was pretty good. I think it'd be great to have after a big family dinner with a mug of coffee. It definitely seems like the kind of pie my grandma would serve. It was a bit messier to eat, however, than I would've liked, so be careful when serving it.

This was my first time trying Coconut Cream Pie and I LOVED it! My favorite part was the marshmallow topping. The taste was light and sweet - I would definitely make this for a summer party.

The filling was way too sweet for my taste but the crust and the tiny coconut pieces were great.

This pie has a great coconut flavor - perfect for coconut lovers everywhere! It also has a heavier cream filling, almost like a pudding, which sets it apart from other cream pies. This is very rich, so a small slice will do!

This is one of th easestnbest Pies ever. Thank you
