In a blender, add milk, sugar, Bisquick, eggs, butter, vanilla, and coconut. Cover and blend on low speed for 3 minutes. Pour into greased 9-inch pie pan. Let stand about 5 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Spread meringue on top and bake for an additional 10 minutes.


Directions for meringue, beat egg whites until frothy. Gradually add sugar and cream of tartar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Spoon onto pie, spreading to edge to seal filling.

Cooks' note:
Steps to prevent a meringue pie from weeping.
1 Follow a meringue recipe that contains cornstarch. The starch will thicken it and absorb moisture.
2 Use very fine sugar in the meringue so it properly dissolves. Undissolved sugar can cause sweating. Sift your sugar before adding it to the recipe.
3 Sprinkle very small cake crumbs on the pie filling before adding the meringue. They will also absorb moisture.
4 Top the pie with the meringue while the filling is still hot. The heat will help cook the topping from underneath.
5 When you spread the meringue, cover the top of the pie to the edge of the crust. This forms a seal that will decrease weeping.
6 Avoid overbaking the pie. Moisture is produced when egg whites are overcooked.
7 Serve the dessert as soon as possible. Meringue pies only last a few days, and any humidity that's present in the room will break down the topping.
8 Store the pie in a covered dish at room temperature. Do not refrigerate the dessert because the cold will create condensation

To make this American classic, simply fold shredded sweetened coconut into American-style pudding and spread the pudding in a prebaked pie shell. To give it an intense coconut flavor, use coconut milk to make the pudding - not the sweetened coconut cream used to make pina caladas, but the unsweetened kind, usually from Thailand.
