    I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com and decided to give it a try. WOW is it ever good!!! I used 8 eggs instead of 6 because I like my filling really rich but I'll never make cream pie on the stove again.

    Microwave Coconut Cream Pie

    Ingredients
    · 3 cups milk
    · 6 large eggs – room temperature – separated
    · 1 cup white sugar
    · 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    · 1/4 teaspoon salt
    · 1/2 stick – 2 ounces butter
    · 1 small (3-1/2 ounce) can sweetened flaked coconut
    · 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    · 10-inch baked pie crust

    Directions
    1. In a very large microwave save bowl combine then sugar, the flour and salt, stir to combine.
    2. Separate the egg yolks from the whites, keep the whites for your meringue.
    3. Beat the egg yolks with a whisk and slowly mix with the milk.
    4. Gradually stir the milk into the sugar and flour mixture.
    5. Microwave on high whisking often. As mixture begins to thicken whisk hard and often.
    6. When mixture is very thick remove from the microwave and add the butter, vanilla and coconut. Stir well to combine.
    7. Turn mixture into baked pie crust, cover with meringue and bake in a 350° oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until meringue is golden.

    Meringue
    6 egg whites
    1-teaspoon vanilla
    1/2-teaspoon cream of tartar
    1/2-cup sugar

    Beat egg whites, vanilla and cream of tartar until they hold soft peaks. Then gradually add sugar a little at a time beating well after each addition until all sugar has been added. Beat until sugar is dissolved. Top pie and bake.
