Raspberry Coconut Cream Tart

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

This was a year that Easter fell right around my birthday. I think of coconut treats when I think of Easter. Growing up dad love raspberry jam cupcakes with coconut on top. They also became my favorite! I wanted something special for my birthday and two of my favorite flavors, raspberry and coconut cream. They're both in this decadent tart. What better way to celebrate my birthday than with memories of Dad and new beginnings?

I still reminisce about those delicious white cupcakes mom would make for dad. The raspberry seeded jam on top and coconut were such a great combination. When I started out making this tart, all I could think about is how much dad would have loved this tart. I have continued to celebrate my life because of him and cherish those memories made through the years. This put a tear in my eye and a smile on my face, thinking of him.

As a little girl like most, I idolized my dad. As I grew up knowing things he liked I tried very hard to duplicate and reinvent new recipes that he would like. Even though he has been gone since 1995, I still continue to do that in him memory.


With that being said, I will celebrate life with this decadent tart and until we meet again Dad is smiling down on my I am sure of it.
