Started my Christmas baking, and wanted to do a little something from the Island. Searched the forums, etc., but couldn't find a recipe. Does anyone have a recipe for those great little coconut tarts? Thanks!

I tried making them with no recipe...kinda used a praline base...but the main thing that was missing was the FRESH coconut. They were OK, but hopefully someone will cough up the REAL recipe! laugh

Denny, I'm suspect of your crust recipe. Coconut filling sounds ok.

For the filling use cream not water and use softer, under ripe coconut. (but not so soft that you can't grate it)
