Directions: Crafting Perfection

1. Preparing the Coconut

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread the sweetened flaked coconut on a baking sheet, and allow it to bake, stirring occasionally, until it achieves a luscious golden brown hue, typically taking around 5 minutes.

2. Creating the Filling

In a medium saucepan, combine the half-and-half, eggs, white sugar, all-purpose flour, and salt, stirring well to ensure a homogeneous mixture. Over low heat, bring the concoction to a gentle boil, while stirring constantly to prevent any lumps from forming. Once the mixture thickens to perfection, remove the pan from the heat and infuse it with 3/4 cup of the toasted coconut and a dash of vanilla extract.

3. Assembling the Pie

Pour the sumptuous filling into the awaiting pie shell and allow it to chill until firm, typically requiring approximately 4 hours. Upon achieving the desired consistency, adorn the pie with a generous layer of frozen whipped topping, sprinkled with the remaining toasted coconut, imparting an irresistible visual appeal and texture.
