Recipe for raspberry & coconut tarts!

I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes with you today - Raspberry and coconut tarts. They are so easy to make and they are so incredibly delicious hot out of the oven!

Get a bowl out, and gather what you will need to mix them up. I used my Kitchenaid mixer, but a hand mixer or a good old wooden spoon will work just as well.


* 2 eggs
* 3/4 C. sugar
* 1 tsp cornstarch
* 1/4 tsp salt
* 1/4 C. margarine, melted
* 1 Tbsp lemon juice
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 1 1/2 C. coconut

* 18 frozen regular size tart shells 
* Jam of your choice

Mix all ingredients together and set aside. Preheat oven to 375.

Next scoop a small amount of your favorite kind of jam (I chose raspberry) into each tart shell lined on a baking sheet.

All you do now is scoop one heaping tablespoon of the coconut  mixture on top of the jam and pop those tarts in the oven! Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until tops are golden brown! This recipe makes 18 tarts.
