I’m not a great fan of coconut, it always gets stuck in my teeth! However, this recipe may change all of that. This is a winner.
We don’t have anything like coconut cream pie in the UK, so it was great to try a proper American dessert which was chosen by Brenda. First off, I watched the video attached to this link so that I new what I was doing. This helped alot. It was actually pretty easy. I baked the coconut whilst the crust was in the freezer but that was the only change that I made.
The pressed-in crust. It had a great saltiness to it.
The coconut custard added and then sprinkled with toasted coconut.
Then whipped cream added and topped with more coconut.
The final shot – I was too busy eating to take a photo of a slice – sorry!
Mum loved it, dad loved it and I loved it. A complete winner. I will be making this again as soon as there is a need for a special dessert.
I agree Pru, we loved this tart! I was really pleased how it came out and it’s so delicious!!
Glad you liked it!!
Yes, it looks great. Nice photos here! I love coconut, but not a big fan of custards or cream pies. I might give it a go, but I think it would go to waste at out house. I can’t bring it in to work because schools out for summer! Nice that a recipe was actually easy to make!
I liked it too and am generally not big on coconut. It was just lovely.
Oh it looks so pretty! I love love your first photo. I’m glad it was a sucess and I was sorry to miss this one. I cook on the fly in the summer when kids are everywhere during their vacation so haven’t been able to participate in Martha Mondays.
Have I told you how much I love that first picture yet?
