Coconut Tarts

I missed those days eating these Coconut Tarts when I was a kid. I came across this recipe from Sifu Kenneth Goh and decided to give it a try since the steps seem easy. However I made a mistake of adding 1 whole egg instead of 25g (half egg) as indicated and my dough became very sticky. I have to add more flour in order to get to the consistent I felt right. I have modified the recipe a little (from Sifu Kenneth & Aunty Yochana) for my future bake.

Some modifications made:


100g chilled butter
200g plain flour (sifted)
40g icing sugar (sifted)
1 small egg (light beaten)
1/2 vanilla essence

180g grated coconut
75g melted butter
100g sugar
2 eggs
1.5 tbsp condensed milk


1. In a big mixing bowl, put the butter cubes and sifted flour. Use finger tips to rub until it become crumbly. Add in sifted icing sugars and continue to rub until well mix.
2. Add lightly beaten egg and vanilla essence, mix slowly until it becomes a dough (a little sticky).
3. Dust the tarts mould with flour. Take a ball of dough and press against the sides and make it as even as possible. Use a knife to cut off the excess dough and use a fork to make some holes to let any trapped air to escape.
4. In a big mixing bowl, mix all coconut fillings using a spoon or spatula until well mix.
5. Scoop the fillings into the tart shells and bake at 180 Deg C for 20-25 mins or till golden brown.
