TWD: Toasted Coconut Custart Tart

Thanks to Beryl of Cinemon Girl who picked today’s Tuesday With Dorie recipe.  My favorite part of this recipe was that it could be made in different sessions.  The custard can be done up to 3 days ahead of time.  The shortbread crust was also made when it was convenient for me.  Today, allI had to do was make the whipped cream topping, assemble the tart, and serve it.

The recipe called for 2 tablespoons of dark rum in the custard.  That was a little too much for me, I think.  So, I left out the 2 teaspoons of rum the recipe called for in the topping.

I’m still a little undecided about this tart.  I liked it.  I really did.  I’m just not sure that I loved it.  Every last crumb that I took to work got eaten, though, so it must not have been too bad.

Fortunately for me, I saved myself another piece.  Think I’ll go eat that right now!  Then I can decide how much I love this tart…

This recipe can be found on pages 344 and 345 of Dorie Greenspan’s book, Baking: From My Home To Yours.  It can also be found on Beryl’s blog, Cinemon Girl.
