Bahamian Coconut Tart Recipe - Tropical Desserts
Bahamian Coconut Tart Just sent in by Christi - doesn't it sound delicious?? For more pie recipes than you can shake a stick at (if you really WANTED to shake a stick at pie recipes) visit: My Ever-Growing Pie Recipe Collection
Crust: 2 cups all-purpose flour 3 tsp. baking powder 3 Tbsp. sugar 1/2 tsp. salt 1/3 cup shortening 1/2 cup milk 1 egg, well beaten
Filling: 3 cups grated coconut 1 cup water 1 cup sugar 1/2 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt; cut in the shortening with a pastry cutter (or use two knives) until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and mix in the milk and egg until a firm dough is formed. Roll out 3/4 of the dough into a rectangular shape on a floured surface until it is 1/4-inch thick. Transfer the dough to a greased 9x13-inch pan. Roll out the remaining dough to the same thickness and cut into strips to use as lattice top; set aside for now.
In a saucepan, combine the filling ingredients and cook over medium-high heat until water dissolves, stirring frequently. Cool.
Spoon the coconut filling onto the crust and top with strips of dough to form a lattice top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Serve warm or cool.
