Coconut Custard Tart Pie
I'm not even sure if this bakery is still around, but I can still taste the Coconut Tarts from the bakery in Frederiksted that we used to buy on our way to or from Pony Club. If I had gotten married on St.Croix, I always imagined buying a hundred of those rather than a cake. So, here I am attempting to satisfy my nostalgic palette. Plus, I adore anything with coconut. This recipe is much more custardy, but still passed the Jason test. He liked it better than my more flaky attempt a few months ago. If anyone has a good recipe for REAL Crucian Coconut Tarts, please let me know!!!
However, I always take the Review suggestions seriously when making recipes, so I adjusted the recipe according to some suggestions, and my own cravings. (Like i added half coconut milk instead of all regular milk) I think it turned out fabulous looking!! Very fluffy. It's still cooling off.
