Ingredients

Crust

1 (7-ounce) package (2 2/3 cups) sweetened flaked coconut
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted

Filling

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 medium banana, sliced

Meringue

3 reserved egg whites
6 tablespoons sugar

Directions

Heat oven to 325°F. Reserve 1/4 cup coconut; set aside.

Combine remaining coconut and butter in medium bowl; press onto bottom and up sides of 9-inch pie pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, combine 1/2 cup sugar, flour and salt in 2-quart saucepan; stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a full boil (7 to 8 minutes). Remove from heat. Stir small amount of milk mixture into egg yolks; return to pan. Reduce heat to low. Continue cooking until slightly thickened (1 to 2 minutes). (DO NOT BOIL.) Stir in vanilla. Pour half of hot filling into baked crust; cover with banana slices. Top with remaining filling.

Increase oven temperature to 375°F. Beat egg whites in small bowl at low speed until foamy. Increase speed to high; beat, gradually adding 6 tablespoons sugar, until glossy and stiff peaks form. Spread onto warm filling, sealing to edge of crust. Sprinkle with reserved coconut.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 30 minutes at room temperature. Refrigerate at least 3 hours. Store refrigerated.

Fun and strait forward to put together. Only problem with the recipe is that there wasn't enough coconut mixture to completely cover my 9 inch pie pan, so I had to mix up about half a cup more.
Made this pie yesterday as a practice for a gift next week and it is great. Perfect.
Land O Lake is very good . I love to use it. Makes your food better
