Edible! Coconut & Egg tarts




I was playing with old food, trying to put them together and transform them into something.  Surprisingly, the final product came out ... EDIBLE! ... and Pop loves it.  Therefore, now I am trying to back track and write down what I did in the kitchen an hour ago.

I was trying to use old food in the fridge.  I've got some months old frozen unbaked pie crust dough and tomorrow-will-be-expired whipping cream.   I cut up the pastry dough and baked into small tartets.  I was planning to use whipping cream and fruits as filling but found out that the cream has gone bad.  (WTF!?) I also had some leftover coconut milk (about 3/4 of a can) so I decided to use it in place of whipping cream.  I boiled it in microwave with palm sugar and some salt.  I put together 2 egg yolk and some corn starch and slowly pour into the hot coconut milk.  I microwaved the coconut custard mixture for 30 seconds, whisked well, and put back in the microwave for another 30 seconds.  I repeated it...3 or 4 times until the mixture turned creamy but not harden like omelet or San Kha Ya.

I forgot to mix some shredded coconut in the custard mixture.  However, topping it with toasted coconut is not too bad.
