Directions:
1. Prepare the frozen pie crust. Poke the crust with a fork, several times over and then pop it into a 400 degree oven and bake it for 7-10 minutes or until golden brown. Let the baked crust cool completely.

2. Turn your oven down to 350 degrees and pour 2 cups of flaked coconut onto a large baking sheet. Pop it in the oven and let the coconut get toasted. Should only take about 5-7 minutes. Stir it with a spatula a couple of times during baking.

3. Place 2 small boxes of instant coconut cream pudding into your stand mixer or large mixing bowl. Add 2 cups whipping cream and 3/4 cup of whole milk. Mix the ingredients on low speed for 30 seconds. Scrape the bottom of your mixer with a rubber spatula to be sure all of the pudding mix is incorporated. Then mix on medium speed until the pudding is thick.

4. Add 1/4 teaspoon of Coconut Exract and 1/4 cup sour cream. Mix until just until combined.

5. Spread the filling into the cooled crust making a small mound in the center.

6. Take 1 cup of thawed cool whip and spread it over the pie filling.

7. Sprinkle the toasted coconut over the cool whip. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 24.

8. Cut and serve.
