    Remove, add 1 cup coconut, butter and vanilla...stir well, pour into prepared pie shell.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks, add sugar, cornstarch and cream of tartar mixture, 1/3 amount each time... beat until smooth, add another 1/3 etc...add vanilla...beat until stiff peaks form. Put on pie making sure to "seal" the shell all the way around..Sprinkle 1/2 cup of coconut on top and bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes for until golden brown...
  4. Enjoy!!! Any leftovers may be kept in the refrigerator.
