“Don’t You Love Her Madly” Coconut Pie


by: Moogie

This dessert is as old as the hills and it's a classic. It goes together quickly with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. As delicious as it is, I haven't seen it on any one's blog. Let's talk a little about meringue. Does yours weep? Here is a definition of the term. It's the description of the liquid that forms between a meringue topping and the pie's filling after it's been baked. The moisture seeps out when the pie is cut, or it may form beads on the meringue. If a pie is made properly, the appearance of weeping can be minimized.

1.  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.

2.  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
