The Recipe Book: Honeysuckle

Coconut Fruit Tart

Tart Shell

1 1/3 cup all purpose flour

¼ tsp kosher salt

2 tbsps sugar

8 tbsps unsalted butter, melted

In a bowl combine flour, salt, and sugar. Mix well and pour in melted butter.

Mix together until dough comes together. Spread dough in 9 inch tart pan and press down with fingers to evenly cover bottom and sides.

Prick dough with fork and put in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Place tart pan in preheated oven at 350 for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and cool completely.

Coconut Pastry cream

1 can coconut milk (13.5 oz)

¼ cup sugar

¼ cup cornstarch

¼ tsp kosher salt

3 egg yolks

2 tbsps unsalted butter

In a medium pan, heat up coconut milk on medium heat just until steaming.

In another bowl, mix cornstarch, sugar, salt, and egg yolks. Whisk well until it becomes a smooth paste.

Once coconut milk is steaming, temper the egg yolks by ladling 1 cup of milk into egg mixture. Whisk well while adding milk to avoid overcooking eggs. Continue whisking and add in an additional cup of milk.

Pour mixture back into pan and let it come to a boil. Whisk as the mixture is heating to avoid clumping. Mixture will thicken, aim for a pudding texture. Once it reaches this consistency, turn off heat and  leave to cool to room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for up to 2 hours.

Fruit options:
Pineapple slices
Mango slices
kiwi slices

To assemble tart:

Once ready to assemble, pour pastry cream into tart shell and spread evenly. Take the tropical fruit of your choice, starting with largest fruit and layer in a circular pattern. Continue to layer until the tart is covered, then sprinkle with coconut flakes to finish.
