    Prep: 35 min. Bake: 40 min. + chilling
  • Makes
    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs, separated
  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1-1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • GANACHE:
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup

Directions

  • Place egg whites in a small bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, line a 9-in. pie plate with pastry; flute edges. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat egg yolks until slightly thickened. Gradually add sugar, beating on high speed until thick and lemon-colored. Beat in the cream, butter, lemon juice, salt and extract. Fold in coconut.
  • With clean beaters, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form; beat on high until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold into coconut mixture. Pour into pastry shell.
  • Bake at 375° for 40-50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean (cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary). Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • For ganache, place chocolate in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream and corn syrup just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Drizzle over pie. Refrigerate until set.
