Preheat oven to 375F. Roll out pie crust to fit a 9-in pie pan. Crimp edges and prick bottom and sides of pie crust. Place pie weights (dried beans in parchment paper, etc) in bottom of pie crust and bake at 375F 10-15 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Remove pie weights and bake an additional 5-10 minutes until golden-brown. Cool completely on a wire cooling rack.
Coconut Pudding Filling
In a medium saucepan, whisk sugar, coconut milk, and half-and-half until smooth. Bring to a low simmer over medium heat. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk egg yolks and cornstarch until smooth.
Temper the egg yolks by taking 1 tablespoon hot milk mixture and whisking into egg yolks, doing this a total of 4 times. Add egg yolk mixture back to remaining hot milk and whisk over medium heat until filling is bubbly and thickened. Remove from heat and stir in butter, vanilla, and coconut. Pour filling in cooled crust and press plastic wrap directly on center. Chill at least 4 hours or overnight.
In a small bowl, mash blackberries with sugar and let stand 10 minutes until raspberries release their juices. Chill until ready to use.
In the bottom pot of a double-boiler, bring a few inches of water to a boil, then reduce heat to low to keep water at a simmer. Whisk egg yolks, sugar, lemon juice, and zest into the top bowl of double boiler and place on top of bottom pot of simmering water.
Whisk lemon curd continuously so the egg yolks don't curdle, Continue whisking orange curd over simmering water until curd becomes smooth and thickened, about 8-10 minutes. Remove curd from heat and immediately add butter, 1 tablespoon at a time whisking well after each addition. Pour curd into a smaller bowl and press plastic wrap directly to the surface. Chill at least 2 hours.
Assemble The Pie
When ready to serve, spread blackberry filling over coconut pudding filling. Top with chilled lemon curd. Garnish pie with whipped cream, additional shredded coconut, and raspberries. Slice pie and enjoy!
