Ingredients

  • 1 fourteen-ounce sweetened condensed milk
  • 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped pecans

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Place milk, butter, and vanilla in a medium saucepan, and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted and combined.

  2. Step 2

    Whisk egg yolks in a medium bowl, and, whisking constantly, add some of the hot milk mixture to the egg yolks until combined. Whisk the mixture back into the saucepan, and cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.

    Remove from heat, and stir in coconut and pecans. Cool completely, and refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to use, up to 2 days.

    WONDERFUL!! Good enough to eat by itself. I made this with the Inside out GCC and now double the recipe for generous icing. Very, very good.
