1 cup sugar
3 egg yolks
1/2 cup margarine (of course I only use butter)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 cup angel flake coconut . . . 1 cup chopped pecans
Combine the first 5 ingredients in saucepan, cook and stir over med-low heat until thickened 10-12 minutes. Add coconut and pecans, beat until thick with a spoon. It will thicken as it cools. I let it sit out while stirring now and again, until frosting consistency.
Thank goodness for birthdays . . . this is the only frosting we use w/a german chocolate box cake. Kim
