Lemon Coconut Tartlets

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Debbb

I purchased some mini-tart shells from a school fundraiser but didn't know what to do with them. But, I found this little gem in a Canadian Living Christmas Special magazine from 1982. They are really good on their own but a generous dollop of real whipped cream takes them over the top!! Very easy to make, too!

These were even better than I expected them to be! I doubled the recipe and used mini filo dough tart shells--this made about 75 tiny tarts. I tented the tarts with foil for part of the baking time because I was unsure if the filo dough shells would hold up well in the oven for the full 20 minute cooking time. I also topped the tarts with "Never Weep" Whipped Cream Recipe #74805 and toasted coconut. Very impressive looking with a taste to match. I made these for a bridal shower and would definitely take them to any such occasion, thanks!
