Galini's Secret Recipe
Hey, it's me Spuh-en-cer!
Okay, so quick recap:
There's this pie shop called Galini's. And they have the most awesomest Coconut Cream Pie you've EVER tasted. Anyway, last week – sadly – Mr. Galini went to that big pie shop in the sky (In other words, he died). But it's okay, cuz he was like 100 or something. His granddaughter, Trudy (Check out her sweaty pic below.), was the ONLY person who had the secret family recipe. So, I had to date her to get it. Um, can you say, "GROSS?" Yah, so I thought I'd share the recipe with all of you since I had to work so hard to get it.
Mr. Galini's Coconut Cream Pie!
3 cups half-and-half
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups flaked coconut
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (9 inch) pie shell, baked
1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
In a medium saucepan, combine half-and-half, eggs, sugar, flour and salt.
Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring continuously.
Remove from heat and stir in 3/4 cup of the coconut and the vanilla extract.
Pour into pie shell and chill 2 to 4 hours, or until firm.
Top with whipped topping and with remaining 1/4 cup of coconut.
So, you know the deal. Don't try to make this recipe without an adult. I totally consider myself an adult, so I can say this kinda stuff. Gotta go give Carly my dirty clothes. Last time I did the laundry, I shrunk all my socks and had to give them to the Doll-of-America Garage Sale. Later!
