Ingredients

1 c
sugar
1/3 c
cornstarch
2 c
milk, whole
1 c
flaked coconut
4
egg yolks, beaten
2 Tbsp
butter
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1
9-inch pie crust, baked

MERINGUE:

4
egg whites, at room temperature
4 Tbsp
sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1/4 tsp
cream of tartar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Make your meringue first.
Put the egg whites in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add the cream of tartar. Beat the egg whites at high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. With mixer running, gradually add the sugar, one tablespoon at a time, and beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in the vanilla. Set to the side until filling is made.
2
Combine sugar, cornstarch, and milk in 2 quart saucepan. Stirring constantly, cook over medium heat until mixture begins to bubble. Continue stirring for 2 minutes.
3
Mix a little of the hot mixture into the egg yolks, beating rapidly to avoid cooking the yolks. Stir the warm yolk mixture into the remainder of the pudding mixture, and cook until thickened.
4
Remove from heat, and stir in the coconut, butter, and vanilla.
5
Pour filling into pie shell and top with meringue.
Sprinkle coconut on top.
Bake at 375 degrees until meringue is lightly browned.
