Coconut Gizzada (Pinch-me-roun’)
This delicious tart is a local favourite. It has a flaky crust with a sweet filling made from grated coconut.

Pastry:
2 cups flour
½ tsp. salt
2 ½ oz. Butter or margarine
1 ½ oz. Shortening
¼ cup ice water

Filling:
1 large coconut, grated
1 cup light brown sugar
¼ tsp. grated nutmeg
1 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Sift flour and salt for pastry shells. Add butter and shortening and cut in flour. Pour in ice water to form a dough. With a pastry blender, two knives or fingers, blend until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. With hands, shape into a ball and wrap on foil, waxed paper or plastic. Allow to rest in refrigerator for 30 minutes (not the freezer). Divide pastry into 8 pieces. With hands roll each piece of pastry into a ball then use a rolling pin to roll balls flat to make a 3 inch circle ¼ inch thick. Pinch the edges to form a ridge to hold in coconut and sugar mixture. Put on greased tin sheets and partly bake shell.

To make filling: Mix coconut, sugar, nutmeg and water and cook over a low flame for about 20 minutes. Add butter. Fill shells with coconut mixture and bake for a further 15 – 20 minutes. Yields 8

Carmen, welcome to CC

These recipes are super...

My mother is a 'tart lady'. Whenever I go to visit her and she gives me a tart I usually eat more than half of it on my way home...

Yea! thank you harmac, I will try to make this tart for Thanksgiving day.  Wanted to surprise my mother and let her know I can make tart. 

 

Yes, everytime the family goes to visit my mother, she makes tart and puddin, but she cannot make enough.  I tell her to just make one for me and I will eat it for days.  I would watch it like a hark, and dare anyone to take peace of it.
