These are great. Love the addition of the lemon flavor with the coconut. These also freeze very well after being set (without the fruit on top) a great cheesecake treat for anytime. I did also have some with a topping of cherry pie filling. Great recipe. Swap#27 Aus/NZ

I'm not usually big on the small, individual servings [unless the slab is cut into bars!], but decided to take on these tarts! Glad I did, 'cause the making of them was a fun time, & the eating of them was A REALLY FUN TIME! I was afraid I wouldn't find the fresh ingredients called for, but the weekly local Farmers' Market came through yet again! I even shared them with several neighbors [who think I'm unusual [or crazy!] for doing so much shared cooking! Thanks yet again for a great recipe!
