Coconut Tarts ~椰丝塔

 This is a highly recommended coconut tart. Frankly, i never fancy coconut in tarts but after baking this batch of coconut tart i have changed. I love the fragrant coconut filling. It is lightly crunch on the outside and moist coconut filling inside. The recipe mention to use desiccated coconut but i rather like the richness and taste of the freshly grated ones. I happen to have some freshly grated coconut in the freezer so why not make use of it :p

i am impress how lovely the look of this tart!! :D ;D
Simple and lovely!
Yummy!! Coconut Tarts
The coconut filling is moist and fragrant with a light crunch crust ... YUM!
I used freshly grated coconut instead of desiccated coconut.
i only make 1/4 of the recipe, which give me only 3 tarts :D
