White Christmas Custard
1 envelope unflavored gelatine
1/4 cup cold water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup whipped cream
3 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup coconut

Soften gelatine in cold water.

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.
