1/2 cup sugar

3 tablespoons cornstarch

2 cups skim milk

3 eggs, separated

2 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup sweetened flaked coconut, plus 1/3 cup for the top

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

pie shell, baked


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sugar and cornstarch in a medium sized saucepan.
Pour in milk and whisk constantly over medium high heat until mixture is thickened and bubbly, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Separate eggs. Place yolks in a small bowl and whites in a large metal mixing bowl. Set whites aside. Beat yolks slightly with a fork. Pour in a tablespoon of hot mixture into yolks. Return to hot mixture. Cook and stir over medium high heat for 2 minutes longer.

Remove from heat. Stir in butter and the teaspoon of vanilla. Mix well. Stir in the one cup of coconut.

Pour into cooled pie shell.

For the meringue:

Beat the 3 egg whites with the 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla and the cream of tartar until stiff peaks form, about 4 to 5 minutes.

Spread over pie, being sure to seal edges with meringue. Sprinkle the 1/3 cup of flaked coconut over.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes or until meringue is nicely browned.

Cool, refrigerate and serve.
