Glamorous Glutton:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 10
Ingredients
  • 250mls Coconut milk
  • 3 Egg yolks
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 25g Plain Flour
  • 320g packet Ready rolled puff pastry
  • 170g Fresh blueberries
  • 15g Coconut chips
Method
  1. preheat the oven 190c, 170c fan, gas mark 6, 375f
  2. Grease 10 holes of a muffin tin.
  3. Place the coconut milk in a small pan and bring to just boiling.
  4. In a large bowl whisk the eggs and sugar together until they thicken and lighten in colour. Add the flour and beat until smooth. It may look lumpy at first, but keep beating and it will smooth out.
  5. Add the coconut milk to the egg mixture whisking all the time.
  6. Return to a pan and gently heat stirring continuously until the mixture thickens and coats the back of the spoon,
  7. Set aside to cool with cling film directly onto the creme patissier to stop a skin from forming.
  8. Unroll the pastry and roll out a little further until large enough to cut 10 4inch (10cm) circles.
  9. Place the pastry circles into the muffin tin and add 4-5, blueberries to each one, depending on the size.
  10. Place in the fridge for 30 mins
  11. Remove from the fridge and fill to ¾ with the creme patissier and place in the oven.
  12. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown and the custard still has a slight wobble. The tops may be slightly scorched, this adds to the flavour.
  13. Set aside on a cooling rack. When you remove the tarts from the oven they will be slightly puffed up, as they cool they will sink.
  14. Spread the coconut chips on a baking tray and bake at 200c, 180c, gas mark 6, 400f for about 10 minutes until golden brown. Watch carefully as the coconut goes from golden to burnt very quickly.
  15. Top the tarts with the remainder of the blueberries and coconut.
