  • 1 C Pioneer® Sugar
  • ¼ C cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 C half & half
  • ½ C whole milk
  • 6 egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 T butter
  • 1 tsp coconut extract
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 2 C flaked coconut
  • 1 9-inch pastry shell, baked

Meringue Ingredients:

  • 6 egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar
  • 6-8 T Pioneer® Sugar


  1. Remove eggs from refrigerator and let set at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before preparing this recipe.
  2. In a saucepan, combine Pioneer® Sugar, cornstarch and salt; gradually stir in half & half and milk. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until bubbly. Continue to cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Take out approximately 1 cup of hot mixture and stir into the beaten yolks; stir to blend. Immediately return the yolk mixture to the hot mixture and cook for 2 more minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
  3. Add the butter, coconut extract, vanilla and flaked coconut. Mix well. Pour into cooled, baked pastry shell; set aside.

Meringue Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Beat the egg whites with vanilla and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Gradually add Pioneer® Sugar (1 tablespoon at a time), beat until stiff and glossy peaks form and all the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Spread the meringue over custard filling, seal to the edge. Sprinkle a few flakes of coconut over the top. Add a little sprinkle of sugar to add “sparkle” if you wish. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until meringue is golden brown. Cool completely before cutting. Store in refrigerator.
