How To Make Coconut Cream Tart Pies

  1. If your pre-made mini tart crusts need to be baked, bake them per directions on the side of the box.
  2. Next, follow the directions for making coconut pudding, located on the side of the pudding box.
  3. Mix together pudding ingredients in a large bowl and let sit for a few minutes to allow to thicken.
  4. Next, take your pudding and put 2-3 tablespoons (depending on how full you want it) directly in the mini tart crust.
  5. Once added, take and add a dollop of whipped cream to the top. You can then sprinkle with the sweetened shredded coconut. (to toast your coconut just put the shredded coconut in the oven on a baking sheet and broil on low for a couple of minutes- watch closely to not burn!

How To Toast Coconut

Sure, you can use the shredded and sweetened coconut right out of the package but it’s oh, so much tastier and nuttier if you toast it. Here are two handy ways to toast coconut.

  • Oven Method: Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat. Spread out the shredded coconut on the baking sheet and bake for 3 minutes. Use a spatula to stir the coconut around and bake for 3 more minutes or until golden brown. Because of coconut oil content, you’ll need to watch it carefully so it doesn’t burn!
  • Skillet Method: In a large non-stick skillet, spread out the shredded coconut and cook over medium-low heat, stirring continuously until it’s toasted to a light golden brown. Don’t wait for all the shreds to become brown because by then it will actually be burnt! Pull it off the burner and out of the pan before that point.

Can I Use Non-Dairy Milk?

Yes and no. If you have an allergy to dairy, then you’ll want to use almond milk, coconut milk, or rice milk. Soy milk is not recommended. But there’s one major difference you’ll need to be aware of and that is that non-dairy milk works best with the cook and serve a version of pudding. In other words, the instant pudding mix won’t perform well with non-dairy milk. So if you have just a little extra time, you can stir this together, on the stovetop, a non-dairy pudding alternative. Once thickened, pull it off the heat and let it cool completely before continuing with the recipe.
