2 eggs, beaten

3/4 cup white sugar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4. Remove the pan from the heat, and stir in 3/4 cup of the toasted coconut and the vanilla extract.

5. Reserve the remaining coconut to top the pie.

6. Pour the filling into the pie shell and chill until firm, about 4 hours.
