Coconut Cream Tart Filling

Yields8 Servings

 ¼ cup sugar
 2 tbsp cornstarch
 pinch of salt
 ¾ cup whole milk
 1 tbsp butter
 ½ tsp vanilla
 ½ cup unsweetened flaked coconut
 1 cup heavy cream
 ½ cup unsweetened flaked coconut, for topping

Combine the sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a medium saucepan. Gradually stir in the milk until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly, and boil for 1 minute, until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in the butter and vanilla. Once the butter has melted, stir in the unsweetened flaked coconut. Cool the mixture completely.


In a medium bowl, beat the heavy cream with an electric mixer until medium peaks form. Using a spatula, fold the whipped cream into the cooled pudding mixture. Spoon into a prepared tart crust.


Toast the remaining flaked coconut in a skillet over medium-low heat until golden brown, 5-10 minutes. Allow to cool. Top the coconut cream tart with the cooled toasted coconut and chill until served.
