    [​IMG] Okay people, here's a really easy one. It skips the tempering step. I strain mine after I've combined the first 5 ingredients and before cooking.

    Coconut Meringue Pie

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees

    Filling
    4 Tbls. granulated sugar (more if desired)
    5 Tbls. all purpose flour
    1/4 tsp. salt
    2 Cups milk
    3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
    1 Cup shredded coconut
    2 tsp. vanilla extract (I always use extract not flavoring)

    1 baked 9" pie shell

    Meringue
    2 egg whites(I use all three and 1 or 2 more Tbls. sugar)
    4 Tbls. granulated sugar
    1/2 Cup shredded coconut

    Filling: Combine sugar, flour and salt and add milk and egg yolks, mixing thoroughly(I strain it into the pan). Cook until thickened , stirring often. Remove from heat. Add the 1 cup coconut and vanilla extract. Cool slightly, then turn into pie shell.

    Meringue: Beat egg whites until foamy throughout. Add sugar, 2 Tablespoons at a time, beating after each addition until sugar is blended. Then continue beating until mixture will stand in peaks(no longer as it will dry the whites out) Pile lightly on filling; sprinkle with the 1/2 cup coconut.

    Bake @ 325 degrees F for 15 min. or until lightly browned

    Cool, eat, enjoy

    instead of all vanilla use a little almond extract with it.. makes a huge flavor difference.
