3 egg yolks Dash of salt 3/4 cup sugar 3 cups milk 2 tablespoons butter 1/2 cup cornstarch 1 cup coconut 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 baked 9-inch pie shell 3 egg whites Coconut for garnish
In the top of a double boiler over simmering water beat the egg yolks and salt. Add the sugar, milk, and butter. As soon as the bottom pot boils, mix the cornstarch with a small amount of water. Add it to the egg yolk mixture a little at a time. Cook until thick, stirring constantly with a wire whisk. Add the coconut and vanilla. Pour the filling into the baked pie shell. Beat the egg whites with a small amount of sugar and spread the meringue over the pie. Sprinkle coconut on top and toast in the oven. Makes 6 servings.
