This was my mother's famous Easter dessert. I always looked forward to having it at our Easter dinners with the different colors of coconut for the holiday.

  • Beat egg whites with salt in a large metal or glass bowl, using an electric mixer, until egg whites hold stiff peaks, 3 to 5 minutes. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form sharp peaks. Beat 3 tablespoons sugar into egg whites, followed by vanilla extract. Slowly pour hot cornstarch mixture into egg whites and beat constantly until mixture is stiff.

  • Pour whipped filling into pie crust and sprinkle with colored Chill until set.
