I made these for a party and everyone thought they were amazing. They were super easy to make and I have made them again with the same results. I am going to try and change up the crust just slightly with some chocolate chips instead of macadamia nuts and maybe a slight bit of vanilla.
This recipe was terrible. The recipe said to cook the custard for 5-6 minutes. After 45 seconds, mine looked ready. Unfortunately, I assumed that couldn't be correct and cooked it for another minute turning it into a globby mess. The crust was the worst part though. It needed tons more sugar and lacked all flavor except flour. What a waste of $13 worth of macadamia nuts.
This was a good recipe, and so cute! They looked beautiful. However, I would agree with another reviewer that the crust needed a hint of sweetness. It was good with the combination of flavors, but didnt stand too well on its own. I thought the coconut filling was good and easy. I added more coconut than it called for because I wanted a strong coconut flavor. Also, instead of macadamia nuts, I substituted pecans. Yum! They are impressive looking everyone really enjoyed them. I would definitely make them again.
I was disappointed and they are very time consuming to make. These little tarts have a creamy, sweet custard filling, but I thought it was missing good coconut flavor and the crust lacks flavor as well. I like the concept and may make them again, but with a few adjustments to the recipe like replacing half of the milk with coconut milk and instead of adding two tablespoons of water to the dough, I'll use vanilla.
