Ingredients
  Vanilla wafer crumbs 1 Cup (16 tbs) (About 26 Wafers)
  Reduced calorie stick margarine 2 Tablespoon, melted
  Cooking spray 1 Tablespoon
  Egg yolks 2 Large, lightly beaten
  Sugar 6 Tablespoon
  Cornstarch 3 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Skim milk 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)
  Flaked sweetened coconut 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
  Imitation coconut extract 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Egg whites 3 Large (At Room Temperature)
  Sugar 3 Tablespoon
  Flaked sweetened coconut 1 Tablespoon
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Combine crumbs and margarine in a bowl; stir well. Press into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes; let cool on a wire rack. Reduce oven temperature to 325°.
3. Place egg yolks in a bowl; stir well, and set aside. Combine 6 tablespoons sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a medium saucepan. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly with a whisk. Remove from heat.
4. Gradually stir one-fourth of hot milk mixture into yolks, and add to remaining hot milk mixture, stirring constantly. Cook over medium heat 2 minutes or until mixture is thick, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 cup coconut, vanilla, and coconut extract. Pour into prepared crust, and set aside.
5. Beat egg whites with clean, dry beaters at high speed of a mixer until foamy. Gradually add 3 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form and sugar dissolves.
6. Spread egg white mixture over hot filling, sealing to edge of crust. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon coconut. Bake at 325° for 25 minutes or until golden. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Store any leftover pie loosely covered in the refrigerator.
