Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Gradually stir about 1 cup hot filling into beaten egg yolks. Return egg yolk mixture to filling in saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil. Cook and stir 2 minutes more; remove from heat. Stir in butter and vanilla. Set filling aside. Prepare meringue. Pour hot filling into baked pastry shell. Evenly spread meringue over hot filling, carefully sealing to edge of pastry. Bake for 25 minutes. Cool on wire rack 1 hour.
