Coconut Cream Pie

I love coconut cream, chocolate cream and banana cream pies.
They are delicious and I can't get enough.
Here is how to make Coconut Cream Pie the old way:

You will need:
1 cup of flaked and toasted coconut.(spread your coconut around on a baking pan and simply bake it at 350°F for a few minutes until browned. You might need to mix it up once or twice and keep an eye on it too. It should take about 5 minutes or so.)
2 large eggs
3cups of half and half cream
1/4 teaspoon of salt
 1/2 cup of flour
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
a  baked pie shell, your own or bought
1 cup of whipped cream
3/4 cup of white fine sugar.

How to assemble:
Combine the half and half, eggs, flour, sugar and salt in a pan and bring to a boil over low heat while stirring constantly.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in 3/4 of  your coconut and the vanilla extract.
Pour the mixture into your pie shell.
Refrigerate the pie for several hours. usually around 3 is enough.
It should be firm.
Top it off with the rest of the toasted coconut and fresh whipped cream.
You can even put a cherry on top.
Now make a pot of coffee and one of tea and invite your friends over for dessert.
