  • 1 (.25 ounce) package unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
  • 2 tablespoons flaked coconut
  1. Sprinkle gelatin over cold water; set aside to soften.
  2. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, flour, and salt in a saucepan. Gradually stir in milk. Cook over low heat, stirring until it boils. Boil for 1 minute, and remove from heat. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in softened gelatin. When partially set, beat with a rotary mixer until smooth. Blend in vanilla and 1 cup coconut.
  3. Whip the cream until stiff. Gently fold into coconut mixture.
  4. In a clean bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Beat in cream of tartar and 1/2 cup sugar. Continue beating until egg whites form stiff peaks. Fold into coconut mixture. Pile filling into cooled pie shell. Sprinkle with additional coconut. Chill pie for at least 2 hours or overnight.
