Coconut Tart

coconut tart01

I had some leftover sweet shortcrust pastry from the Apple Crumble recipe, enough for a small tart base. So what to do with it??? I surfed a bit and got myself an idea to make a coconut tart with whatever I have in my larder. The coconut filling seems enough for a small 6" tart. Hubby likes this a lot as the coconut aroma is fantastic but I might want to try this using freshly grated young coconut next time to get a moist coconut filling. I'm wondering if I need to dry up the grated coconut a little first before using... anyone?



1/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cup dessicated coconut

Roll out pastry into a tart tin. Brush in some strawberry jam on the base. Mix together all the ingredients for the filling. Pour filling into the pastry. Bake till golden brown.

I adore coconuts! Sounds like very easy to do. But I too wonder if using fresh coconuts will have all the santan flowing out? When you experimented with it, share again?
