Step 1

First thing that I do is Bake my pie shell 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven

Next I do the first stage of the meringue this is important because it needs to cool before going into meringue

in a 9 inch skillet place 2 Tablespoons Sugar, 1 Tablespoon Corn Starch and 1/2 cup water whisk well stirring all the time while cooking
I cook on an electric stove so I place the heat level on 4.5 not quite medium heat
this will start out milky white and as it thickens it will turn clear
takes about 14 minutes
when thick and bubbly remove from heat and allow to cool

Now the filling for the pie:
in a large skillet I mix the sugar, corn starch, salt and milk together
setting my temp on 6.5 and stirring constant I cook until a thick and bubby boil; takes about 6 minutes. Once I reach this stage I turn the temp down to medium 5. and cook for a full 2 more minutes
remove from heat and temper the eggs into the filling
I mix ,1 at time, 6 tablespoons of filling into the eggs I stir well between tablespoons after blending the 6th tablespoon into eggs I mix
all egg mixture into the remaining filling
return to heat 5. and bring to a soft boil. Once you reach a bubbly boil cook for a full 2 minutes stirring at all times
remove from heat and stir in 1 cup coconut and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
pour into pie shell and set aside

the Meringue:

2nd Stage Using a kitchen aide stand mixer on speed #6 I blend the egg whites with
1/4 teaspoon creme of tarter and salt
blend until foamy about 2 minutes
now blending slowly add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 6 Tablespoons Sugar
whipping on speed 6 to 8, whip until soft peaks form
about 2 to 3 minutes
after you reach soft peak stage start adding stage 1: corn starch mixture to the meringue Continue to beat on level 8(high speed) for about 4 to 5 minutes or until you reach stiff peaks on the meringue

Blend meringue over the pie filling sealing all edges of the crust
once I get the meringue where I want it I take my finger and pull out
stiff peaks randomly over the pie and top with 1/2 cup of coconut

Return to 375 degree oven for about 10 to 12 minutes to toast the top

Makes an excellent pie
