Toasted Coconut Custard Tart TWD

Put the Lime in the Coconut ....
and Shake it all up!
This week, Beryl of Cinemon Girl chose Toasted-Coconut Custard Tart for our baking pleasure. You can find the recipe on the Cinemon Girl blog or better yet, on pages 344 and 345 of Dorie Greenspan's "Baking: From My Home to Yours".
I did a little changing it up by taking out the spices and adding in a little lime juice. It gave it a little island feel. When toasting the coconut be sure to keep an eye on it. You think it may never get done. And then poof ....it's burnt! Even though the kids aren't coconut fans, the tart went over well! I made it in a lovely 7 inch tart pan, I picked up at HomeGoods...5.99!
What a deal!!!!
We give this 4 glasses of milk,
for utter goodness!

What gorgeous curls on top of your tart!

I am also a big fan of the baking aisle at Homegoods...I've found the most interesting sizes of pans there. I think I even have that 7" tart pan somewhere...
