Tuesdays With Dorie – Toasted Coconut Custard Tarts

I made up a batch of these on Saturday to bring to our new Dungeons and Dragons game on Saturday night. (shut up). I am a dwarf warrior named Thaddeus (shut up). Shut up (shut up).

You should have expected no less from a gentleman who has spent 100% of his $reading budget in the past year on graphic novels. I am a nerd. A geek. A square. A dwarf warrior.

Anyway, I made these into mini-tarts because I don’t own a bigger tart pan, and they’re easier to share, which is also nice. My friends were very complimentary towards the tarts and so they gave me +5 XP. That’s tart experience points, my friends.

I don’t know how to toast coconut properly, so I just dumped a bag of coconut into my toaster and pushed down the lever. There was much smoke.

That last paragraph didn’t really happen; just didn’t have anything else to say. Next week is MY TWD RECIPE. Expect some sort of glorious fanfare.
