Mix 1/2 cup sugar, flour and salt in saucepan. Add milk gradually
and cook over low heat, stirring until it boils. Boil for 1
minute, then remove from heat. Stir in softened gelatine until
it is dissolved.
When partially set, beat until smooth and blend in vanilla extract.
Gently fold in whipped cream.
Beat egg white and cream of tartar until frothy. Continue to
beat while slowly adding 1/2 cup sugar. Beat until stiff and
glossy then fold into custard. Add coconut, stirring gently.
This can be served as a custard in bowls or as a pie. Just spoon
mixture into a baked pie shell. Sprinkle either with coconut
and serve with strawberries.
