Great grandma's coconut cream pie




This coconut pie recipe, I really went looking for it a long way, about 50 years in the past to be precise. A mother's recipe from the 50s and 60s, this very rich and creamy tart is pleasantly flavored with coconut.

* Preparation:

Take a pan

When the mixture begins to boil, and it has thickened enough, take it off the heat (we are looking for a texture of hollandaise sauce)
