a simple pleasure

I only posted this one of 2-year-old Gage because it's too embarrassing to post a picture of me with whipped cream all over my face.
This cream was whipped to go on top of our chocolate haupia pie we made last weekend. OH YUM.
Here's the recipe:
1 9" unbaked pie crust
1 c milk
1 can coconut milk
1 T coconut extract
1 c sugar
1 c water
1/2 c cornstarch
1 c chocolate (chocolate chips, dutch chocolate, or something like that)
1 1/2 c heavy cream
1/4 c sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake crust for 15 minutes or until golden brown - set aside to cool In a medium saucepan, whisk together milk, coconut milk, coconut extract and 1 cup sugar. In a separate bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in water. After brining coconut milk mixture to a boil reduce to simmer and slowly whisk in the cornstarch mixture, stirring over low heat until thickened. Divide evenly into 2 bowls. In another bowl, microwave chocolate until melted. Mix chocolate into one of the bowls of coconut pudding, then pour mixture into pie crust. Spread and let sit. Pour the remaining bowl of coconut pudding on top of the chocolate-coconut pudding and spread smooth. Refrigerate pie for an hour or more. Whip the cream & sugar and layer the whipped cream on the pie surface. Garnish with chocolate shavings.
