Delish! Very good and easy! I used about 1/4 cup of butter, which seemed about right. I also used the egg whites for the meringue adding a bit of sugar to the egg whites to whip them up really good -- then browned the pie under the broiler about 5 minutes to add some color to the meringue. Very good cold and very coconutty -- which is exactly what I expected. Thanks for sharing this delicious pie!
