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.
