Coconut Tarts

I enjoyed this tart with my after lunch coffee! Perfect! I even added a dollop of whipped cream just to make it more delectable!'Hope you'll enjoy this too!

What You Need
Crust 
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsps sugar
  • 1 cup butter, diced
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsps cold water
  • 4 tsps raspberry or apricot jam
 
Filling 
  • 1 cup coconut, sweetened and moist
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened 
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla

How to Make Them
Pre heat oven at 350F.
Crust
1. Mix all ingredients except the cold water. Cut the butter in to the flour using a pastry blender. Once you achieve pea-like granules, add the cold water a tablespoon at a time. Knead to form dough. Add more cold water as needed.
2. Freeze the dough for 15 minutes.
3. Cut the dough into 4 parts. Make a ball and flatten out on 4 tart shells. Make sure all areas are covered. I used medium sized tart pans. You may use one big tart pan for this recipe.
4.Refrigerate for about 20 minutes.
5. Prick the dough lightly with a fork.
6. Seal the crust by spreading some jam on it. I used raspberry jam on my tarts.

Filling  
Mix all ingredients in a bowl . Spoon over on the tart shells.

Bake tarts at 350F for about 10 to 15 minutes or until filling is set. Cool tarts for about 30 minutes before consumption!
