We at Foodie Friday celebrated 3/14 with an absolutely bitchin’ coconut cream pie, but we weren’t the only ones baking.  Serious Eats and ScienceBlogs co-hosted their 2nd annual Pi Day Pie Bake-Off on Sunday, and Claudette’s hundred-digit berry pie is far and away my favorite:

Check out the rest of the finalists and vote for your favorite at ScienceBlogs before Thursday.

Absolutely Bitchin’ Coconut Cream Pie

In by Katherine, Dessert First on October 7 at 11:12 pm

This coconut cream pie tastes like an Almond Joy come to life as a pie (only ten times more joyful, and without almonds).

Coconut Cream Pie

If “coconut cream pie” conjures up images of a cloying slice topped with aerosol whipped cream sitting too long under the fluorescent lighting of a display case at Marie Callender’s, you haven’t truly had coconut cream pie. You simply have not lived. Carpe diem, carpe diem! Seize the day. Make your lives extraordinary! O Captain my captain!

This pie brings a little something extra to the table with a chocolate shell layer of crust and chocolate garnish on top, and gains an extra boost of coconut flavor by substituting coconut milk for regular milk. And of course, it uses real whipped cream.

It was adapted by my sister from this Bon Appetit recipe and won a Maslyn family pie contest.  That’s legit.  See how to make the absolutely bitchin’ version after the jump.
