This week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) recipe was chosen by Beryl of Cinemon Girl: Toasted-Coconut Custard Tart. I actually made this last weekend, but I'm a bit late posting this because unfortunately the power cord to my laptop died and I had to order a new one, but better late than never right? So back to this past week's pick... I love all things coconut, so I was eager to try this recipe.
It's basically a rum infused vanilla pastry cream chock full of toasted coconut atop Dorie's wonderful sweet tart crust, topped with a rum flavored whipped cream. With six egg yolks in the pastry cream, I was worried that this tart was going to be overly rich and creamy. Surprisingly, this tart was very light and airy and not heavy at all. The coconut flavor was well complemented with the rum, and you can't ever go wrong with Dorie's sweet tart dough.
While I thoroughly enjoyed this tart, if you love coconut, I would highly recommend that you try Dorie's Florida Pie, which is like a coconut filled key lime pie :)
Thanks, Beryl, for hosting this week. I loved it. If you would like the recipe, you can find it here. Make sure you check out the TWD Blogroll, to see how everyone else enjoyed this light, coconut-y treat!
