Coconut Cream Pie

It really is too bad that we like desserts so much. It makes it terribly hard to resist such great recipes when trying to loose weight. Here is Great Grandma’s (my mom’s) favorite pie recipe.
“Coconut Cream”

3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups milk
3 eggs separated
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 -2 cups coconut
1 9 inch baked pastry shell

Beat egg whites until soft peaks, set aside. In a saucepan stir together sugar, flour and salt.  While stirring gradually add milk.  Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until it bubbles around the edge of pan. Cook and stir 2 minutes. Remove from heat. In a small bowl slightly beat the egg yolks. Temper eggs by adding a small amount ( a couple of tablespoons) of hot mixture into yolks. (I do this about 3 times) Return to pan and cook 2 minutes. Add vanilla, butter and egg whites.  Cook and stir 1 minute.
Pour into cooled baked pastry shell. Place plastic wrap over pudding just touching the mixture. This keeps it from forming that thick dry layer on top. Cool.

When ready to serve top with whipping cream and toasted coconut. Enjoy!!!

Just a fun note. My grandmother baked my grandfather a pie every day for the first year they were married. Crazy huh?
