I have a question about the recipe "Coconuttiest Coconut Cream Pie" from Emma Laperruque. Allergic to corn. What can I substitute for cornstarch?

Here's a recipe from our contributor Alice Medrich: https://food52.com/recipes.... It uses rice flour instead of corn starch. I haven't tried it myself, but I'd imagine that you can do the same 1:1 substitution of whole milk to coconut milk.

Tapioca starch is a great alternative; I think it actually gives a slightly nicer texture than cornstarch. I've made puddings that were originally written with tapioca starch but haven't done the substitution myself, but I've seen suggestions that you use 1.5-2x as much tapioca starch as corn starch.

Me, too. I use potato starch in place of cornstarch. I don't think rice flour has the same texture at all.
