Coconut-Pecan Frosting

Recipe from

Oxmoor House


2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon light-colored corn syrup
2 large egg yolks
1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut, toasted
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon coconut extract


Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chopped pecans, and saute until the pecans are browned (about 2 1/2 minutes). Remove mixture from heat, and stir in sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Add milk, syrup, and egg yolks, and stir well. Cook 2 minutes over medium-high heat or until thick, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in flaked coconut and extracts. Pour mixture into a bowl; cover and chill until slightly stiff (about 15 minutes).
