Toasted Coconut Tart

My first entry into the blog phenomena of Tuesdays with Dorie! A toasted coconut cream tart.....for years I was always under the impression that coconut cream pies, banana cream pies, or any other cream pie for that matter, had vastly different recipes and were quite complicated to make..........not so!!! They are merely a thick pastry cream with your choice of flavoring added to make the cream pie of your dreams! This one is slightly different in that it's a tart, rather than a pie. The shell has a wonderful soft, crumbly texture, much like that of a shortbread cookie, and the filling to topping ratio is about equal. I would have to say that I would have liked a bit more filling per bite than a tart shell can hold, but if that's the only complaint, not too shabby! The overall flavor was to die for and it was the winner, by far, at the Oscar party last night!
