As a young boy, I can recall there was this small pastry shop right in the centre town called “Franz” which made the most delicious Coconut, Guava, and Pineapple Tarts…I’ve ever tasted…I was truly addicted!

I was so disappointed when the pastry shop closed down for good; but there are quite a few Caribbean-style coconut tarts recipes out there – like this one for example.

Coconut tart with golden brown butter crust, freshly grated coconut, chopped almonds and Lemon rind, flavored with almond extract and sprinkled with sugar to top it off.

Coconut Tart Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 2 drops almond extract
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 cups freshly grated coconut
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoon chopped almonds
  • 1 lemon rind
  • Pastry for crust and strips

How to make Coconut Tart:

Combine coconut, sugar (leaving one tablespoon behind) and water in saucepan. Place over heart and cook until coconut become translucent and most of the liquid is gone. Remove, cool slightly and then add almond extract. Whip egg with lemon rind until fluffy, remove rind and combine egg with coconut mixture and then spoon into shell. Sprinkle with almonds. Place pastry strips criss-cross, sealing ends with a little water. Sprinkle with tablespoon sugar, brush with milk and bake in hot oven until golden brown (350F).

Nordic Ware Platinum Nonstick Cast Aluminum Tartlette Pan – Each cavity holds 1/4 cup batter, and the pan measures 13-1/2 by 9-1/2 inches… Great Baking Pans!!

Hi I was wondering if you had a recipe for peppermint. The little candy usually sold in small plastic bags. Usually a white square with red center. Fave from back in the day….
