Dessert & Baked Goods » Coconut Cream Pie
Taking a hammer to a whole coconut is just plain fun. Pastry chef Molly Hanson does just that to make her version of a classic pie. Coconut whipped cream adorns a creamy custard filling made with toasted coconut and vanilla-infused milk. But why take a hammer to a coconut? To shave pearly strips Molly bakes into colorful coconut crisps. They garnish the finished product, resulting in a crunchy hit of coconut in every dreamy bite.
