I love baking & this is one of my favorite things to make. So pretty when it's done. I made several for the hunters at the lodge I cook for during hunting season, as well as I used to make them in restaurants.

    Allow to cool.
  2. Combine first 3 ingredients in heavy saucepan.

  4. Remove from heat & stir in 1/2 cup coconut, butter & vanilla.
  5. Immediately pour filling into baked pastry shell.
  6. Cover the filling with waxed paper.
  7. Beat egg whites (at room temperature)& cream of tartar on high speed of electric mixer for 1 minute.
  8. Beat 2-4 minutes until stiff peaks form & sugar dissolves.
