      Delicious! I used orange extract and topped my tarts with an extra pinch of unprocessed coconut! Baked for 45 minutes ~ Tagged for Rookie Recipes (due 10/31).

      I made this for my west civ project. Its VERY easy to make! However its very mushy in the middle but im gonna put them in the fridge overnight which will hopefully make them excellant, worth 5 stars:) But i put 4 becuase its very mushy, but i would reccomend to do this! Oh, and i added lemon zest ontop of eveything else and it added extra flavor. I would reccoment doing that as well, i made 30 servings and did 1 whole lemon zest.

      I have added a photo ( the one with the blue dish). The left tart is the coconut tart, the right one is a vanilla cream tart ( pastéis de nata).
      I have covered the tin with puff pastry before filling in the custard. They're super delicious! :)
