Coconut Banana Cream Pie - The GBY

Yields8 Servings

 Coconut, flaked
 Butter, melted
 1 Vanilla Pudding, instant, package
 Heavy Whipping Cream
 Vanilla
 Bananas

1

The coconut is your crust, so put as much coconut in a pan as you would need to line your pie pan. Add melted butter. This is tricky, the butter keeps the coconut together to form the crust but too much butter will make the pie too juicy. Roast some coconut pieces separately. Press the coconut mixture evenly into the pie pan.

2

Bake at 350 degrees, check often, you want it to brown not burn. Let the crust cool. Slice bananas to cover the bottom of the pie pan. Prepare vanilla pudding according to directions. Pour pudding into pie pan. Prepare whipping cream. Top pie with whipped cream and garnish with roasted coconut.
