Add the butter and vanilla; stir until butter is melted. Add the coconut and mix. Pour mixture into a baked 9-inch pie crust. Let the pie mixture cool.

Meringue

4 egg whites, reserved for the coconut filling
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
toasted coconut flakes

Beat the egg whites (at room temperature) and cream of tartar with an electric mixer on high speed. Beat until frothy. Gradually add sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, until stiff peaks form and sugar is dissolved (2 to 4 minutes).

Stir in the vanilla and spread the meringue over the hot coconut filling, sealing the edge of the dough. Sprinkle additional coconut over the meringue. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let the pie cool completely before cutting it.
