Toasted Coconut Pie

Toasted Coconut Pie (Memaw's)

3 beaten eggs
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine (melted)
4 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 can flaked coconut
1 unbaked 9 inch pastry shell

Thoroughly combine eggs, sugar, butter, lemon juice, and vanilla. Stir in coconut.
Pour filling into unbaked pastry shell.
Bake in moderate oven at 350 degrees F for 40 to 45 minutes, or until knife inserted halfway between center and edge comes out clean.
Cool before serving.
If desired, garnish with whipped cream or dessert topping and toasted coconut.

(Tomorrow will feature Apple Pies. My Pinterest follower A  has requested a real Dutch appeltaart recipe and there will also be a couple of Memaw's apple pie recipes, too. I keep waiting for this "cool" front to come through here. So far only a little rain!)
