Technique

In a medium sauce pan, combine half & half, eggs, sugar, flour, and salt. Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in 3/4 cup of the coconut and vanilla extract. Pour mixture into the pie shell and chill 2-4 hours, or until firm. Top with whipped topping and the remaining 1/4 cup of coconut.
