  1. In a saucepan, combine flour an sugar; add salt, milk and egg yolks. Mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla and 1 cup coconut. Pour hot filling into pie shell.
  2. For meringue, beat egg whites in a mixing bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar until mixture forms stiff glossy peaks and sugar dissolves. Spread meringue over hot filling. Sprinkle with remaining coconut. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Cool. Store in the refrigerator.

Being from the South I have had my share of great coconut pies and this recipe is definitly a great one! I made this pie for our Easter dessert when I couldn't find the recipe I had intended to...

This pie had good flavor but the consistency of the texture was off. The pie filling separated from the merangue causing it to slide off the top as I served it. I will not make again.

This recipe is great. I made a coconut meringue pie from scratch for the first time using this recipe and it was awesome! My family really liked it and I did too.
