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?

Good Memories

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 his memory.

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

It's so hard to lose parents, especially when you are close and they're your best friend.

I miss them both every day.

Easy Recipe

There are two ways to make this whether you're a baker or not.

Mine is all homemade, but you can make this semi-homemade, you can still experience the great flavors.

Using a store-bought pie shell, boxed coconut pudding, and bottled berry, this pie can be recreated with little ease.

Of course, homemade is always better, but sometimes you can be in such a hurry, the alternative is also delicious.

Decorating Ideas

This delicious raspberry coconut cream tart can be decorated to any holiday theme.

Just add some peeps on tops, chicks, and chocolate Easter eggs and its the perfect Easter pie.

You can even tint the coconut green!

For Christmas, leave it white coconut to look like snow and add cherries on top and green leaves or red and green coated chocolate candies to make a poinsettia.

For the 4th of July, you will need to add some fresh whole strawberries or raspberries on top with a few blueberries

Get creative this pie will always be a hit all dressed up for the holiday!
