twd: coconut custard tart

Mmm, coconut. Toasty, crispy, sweet, and tropical.

Beryl of Cinemon Girl selected this tart, a winning choice as winter weariness sets in. Something about coconut, particularly when nestled in a custard pie, screams of sunshine and flip-flops and floaty dresses. My favorite time of year.

I crafted this tart on Friday, stowed the components separately, and assembled Saturday morning. It was my offering to G's family, but especially his dad C, who is recovering from knee replacement surgery. A sizeable contingent of the family gathered on Saturday afternoon at their home to eat and make merry. A riotous game of Monopoly and many rounds of Connect Four challenged our good sportspersonship, and made us hungry for a full, delicious meal.

The tart was a sweet ending to a lovely day. I can't wait to make this one again, whilst wearing flip-flops and floaty dresses, bippy music spilling out the open windows, a fragrant breeze wafting in.



  1. Oh, how I long for flip flops and floaty dresses and bippy music and all the rest of it right now! Your tart looks lovely; I bet it was just the thing after some intense games of Connect Four!

  2. Very nice tart..Im glad you enjoyed!

  3. I shared mine with my mother-in-law who is recovering from a hip replacement. :) Your tart looks lovely.

  4. AH!! SPRING!! Just around the corner and then Summer. Where does the time go.

    Hope C is recovering well. Glad all enjoyed the tart. Looks tasty.

    It looks gorgeous! It sounds delicious, but flip flops sound even better.
