Coconut Cream Pie

A friend gave me this recipe a few years ago and I'd have to say it's a good one. Try it and let me know what you think. The only thing missing was some good ol' Cool Whip which I didn't have and didn't have a chance to go to the store for either.

Coconut Cream Pie

2 1/4 c. milk
1 c. sugar
1/3 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
3 egg yolks
1 c. coconut
2 T. butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 precooked & cooled pie shell

Scald milk. Mix together sugar, flour and salt. Slowly add to the scalded milk. Cook & stir for 2 minutes.
Beat 3 egg yolks. Add some of the hot milk mixture to the eggs and mix. Then put egg mixture into the rest of the hot milk & cook for 1 minute.
Add coconut & mix well.
Add butter & vanilla. Mix & let cool before placing into pie shell.
Cool completely.
Top with whipped cream or meringue.
