  1. Ive made it before as I said above, and it was excellent. Really, I am salivating at the thought of making it again. I wont change a thing, but maybe putting some pecans in the crust.

  2. Made this last night and holy crap it’s good! I loved making the custard and toasting the coconut. And you really can’t beat that Sweet Tart crust.

    My husband and I ate this last night and I brought it to work today. Everyone LOVED it!

    Dorie puts that the toasted coconut on top of the whipped cream is optional…I say it is a must!

    Have fun with this one everyone!

  3. As much as I want to make this one…. I have no time this week :( I always make on the weekend and this weekend the husband and I are taking a cake decorating class for 5 hours! Super excited about the class, but I will definitely miss this one :) No worries, I will still get in 3 of the recipes this month.

  4. I am WICKED excited about this one. I might even bake it on time. w00t w00t! Anyone wanna try to make macarons with me since we’ll have so many egg white left over?

  5. All the TwD desserts sound so good… How can I get some mail ordered???

    … sorry I haven’t been around for awhile, I moved to the US Virgin Islands (I still giggle when I say that) for six months, and it is taking awhile to get settled. But i do think I am caught up, and will be back with new postings…

    Come take a look at my new blogs of Island life!

  6. I made 1/3 recipe in a gluten-free nut tart crust, which yielded two mini tarts. I used the rum in the cocolnut custard but not in the topping. It was just the right amount, imo. The toasted custard on top really boosted the CQ (coconut quotient) – I thought it was a little too subtle without it. I gave the tarts to my coconut-lovoing friend who has celiac, and she was thrilled! I’ll try to get back here and post the math in case anyone else wants to make a small amount.

    • Whoa! Sorry for all of the typos in my comment above. Here’s the amounts I used for 1/3 recipe:

      Custard – 150g milk, 33 g sugar, 2 yolks, 15g cornstarch, tiny pinches of salt and coriander (but wished I’d used a bit more salt), 2/3 T rum, 1/3 tsp vanilla, 17g butter, 1/3 c coconut,

      Two four inch tart shells

      Topping – 1/3 c cream, 1 T confectioner’s sugar, rum + vanilla as desired.

    • Id say its ok to leave it out, but if you like rum at all, I thought it added something. I liked the rum flavor in both the custard and the topping.

  7. I don’t have any dark rum, and don’t really want to buy a bottle, but I do have some Malibu coconut rum. I think i’ll sub that, anyone else try that? It’s clear, far from dark, but I think the added coconut flavor might be a good thing?

  8. So I decided to buy a bottle of dark rum today. I kept seeing recipes over and over calling for rum, so I’m really hoping the investment is worth it. I just hope I can make it by Tuesday because I have no whole milk tonight and working the next two days. Maybe if I’m not too tired in the evening…

      • Myers was the only rum I could find that actually said dark rum on the label. Kinda stinks that only two people in the house will actually eat the stuff with rum in it.

  9. Oh wow, what an amazing recipe! I loved this so much, and so did the kids! I made mini square tarts and used macadamias in the tart dough, delicious :)

  10. Is it just me, or is there not much of a coconut flavor? I even used coconut rum! it’s good, but aside from the coconut flakes inside the custard, I’m not really tasting it.

    • If you look at the custard recipe, it really is just custard with coconut stirred in. Wonder if making custard with coconut milk would make it thick enough? I’m not daring enough to try it this time around, but maybe somebody else could? Thanks for the heads up. I’ll be adding in some coconut extract.

      • yep I think coconut extract or oil would definitely help. i’m thinking the idea behind this was to make a coconut pie that coconut haters would like. So if you are looking for a really coconutty flavor, you’ll need to boost it. I used coconut Malibu rum and that didn’t do much to boost it. Still fabulously yummy though! :)

  11. I really wanted to make this one, but it is not gonna happen before Tuesday. I just have way too much going on this week. But, I will definitely be doing the other 3 this month.

  12. I made this to serve at a luncheon on Sunday. Did anyone find that the amount of cornstarch was just a bit too much? I thought it was too heavy. However, my guests loved it. The toasted coconut on top is a must. lola

  13. This is my first recipe with TWD (and from the book) and I really enjoyed participating. I loved this recipe. I served it at a dinner party and it was completely devoured. It was just the right amount of coconut taste for me and I liked the rummy after taste. Will definitely be making it again. The whole thing just worked really well.

  14. I didn’t have time to make a tart this weekend, so I decided to make the custard anyway with a little modification and pop it into the ice cream maker. It’s churning away right now – I just took a little taste and I think it’s going to be pretty good!

  15. I inherited a wonderful coconut cream pie recipe from my mom and so I was a little hesitant to try this recipe–in an odd way it felt disloyal to my mom! But it turned out great and I liked the whipped cream on top (my mom used to make meringue). I used a bit less rum and I was well pleased with the result. My guests ate it all up~
