TWD - Toasted-Coconut Custard Tart

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've never tasted coconut cream pie so I really don't have a baseline for assessing the yumminess of the tart but I can say that I wasn't crazy about it. Although I followed the recipe carefully, my dark Jamaican rum completely overpowered the filling. I could scarcely taste the coconut. I brought this tart to my co-workers who, in general, gave it a thumbs up!

Please visit the rest of the TWD baking crew to see what they thought of this recipe.

I'm sorry you didn't love it. Looks gorgeous anyway. Thanks for baking with me.

I'm sorry your rum overpowered the coconut flavor of the filling -- that's a bummer. It looks gorgeous.

LOL - the rum flavour was obviosuly a hit! Your tart looks great.
