Coconut Cream Angel Pie

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pastry shell (9-inch), baked
Meringue
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut

Directions

  1. In a small heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add milk; stir until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir for 2 minutes longer.

  2. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolks; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat; stir in the coconut, butter and vanilla. Pour into prepared shell.

  3. In a small bowl, beat the egg whites, cream of tartar and vanilla on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over hot filling, sealing edges to crust. Sprinkle with coconut.

  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour; refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving.
