How to make it

  • For the pie crust:
  • place flour, salt and butter in food processor and pulse until butter is pea sized. Add sour cream and pulse a couple more times, drizzling in the ice water just until mixture forms a ball. Transfer to floured parchment and wrap well. Repeat and chill for at least one hour.
  • On lightly floured surface roll each dough batch out until 1/4 inch thick. Cut out into small squares with biscuit cutter (or a sharp knife or pizza cutter/ravioli cutter). You can also be creative and use cookie cutters to make other shapes.
  • Place dough pieces on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Prick each piece a few times with a fork. Bake at 400°F for 11-13 minutes, or until browned on the edges. Remove from oven. Cool completely before using.
  • For coconut custard:
  • Mix cornstarch, sugar and salt in a medium size saucepan. Add milk and cream and cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring constantly. Pour a spoonful amount of hot mixture into egg yolks; blend thoroughly. Add about 1/3 of the milk mixture to the egg yolks, then pour back into the saucepan. Cook another 2 or 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the butter and extracts. Stir in 1/2 cup of the coconut. Cover with plastic wrap and press plastic against the custard. Refrigerate until completely chilled.
  • To assemble:
  • Once filling and crusts are cool, spoon custard into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip or a quart or gallon size zip top bag. If you're using the zip top bag, once it's got the filling in it, cut about a half-inch or a little less off one corner. Also place whipped cream into pastry or zip top bags, preferably fitted with a star tip, but that's not absolutely necessary.
  • Squeeze about 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons of custard onto each little crust. Then top with about a teaspoon of whipped cream. Top it all off with toasted coconut. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
