Next up after the Honey Wheat Cookies on Sunday, Beryl of Cinemon Girl’s Toasted Coconut Custard Tart selection this week for the TWD Bakers. Visit Beryl and see how fabulous her Toasted Coconut Custard Tart turned out! You can also get the recipe there too, lucky for you.
Tarts are always a challenge for me. I have a really hard time with Dorie’s instruction to ‘gently’ press the dough around the tart pan. I have a heavy hand so there’s no sign of gentleness while pressing the dough in the tart pan. O, well, it baked well at least!
Then there’s the custard part. I ended up scalding the milk and had to strain it before using it for the custard. It was pretty foamy. I had a hard time trying to figure out if it was boiling until all of a sudden it turned into custard and I had to frantically take the saucepan off the heat and add the vanilla to it. No rum around unfortunately. The coconut was to be lightly toasted. I actually ended up with semi-burnt coconut. Oops, it added some color though. Not a pretty color but color nonetheless.
The easiest part of this tart was whipping up the cream. YAY! Okay done with the TWD goodie for the week. Took it to the family dinner on Sunday also. It was all gone after dessert was served. I didn’t try it in it’s final form, I tried the custard and liked it even though I don’t like coconut. My sister Karole doesn’t like coconut either but ate her share and loved it!
One more post to go from the Sunday baking day and it’s not from TWD.
