Strawberry Coconut Tarts

I’ve made this recipe for Strawberry Coconut Tarts THREE times in the last 24 hours. They were delicious each time. The first time I made them so I could shoot the photos for this post. Then, I decided I wanted to make a video and a friend of mine came over to help me out with it. I sent her home with a dozen tarts to share with her family.

This morning when I went to make the video on the computer, I realized that all the videos were shot in slow motion. D’oh! How did I manage to do that?! Anyways, the videos were useless, but I was determined to make a recipe video to share with you.

I ran out for the third time to the grocery store to buy more ingredients and made the video myself this morning. I made sure to check that it wasn’t in slow motion. I was worried something was wrong with my iPhone. Yes, I shoot my videos with my phone because it’s easy peasy!

They are similar to a Coconut Pie I recently made. If you aren’t a fan of strawberries, switch out the jam to another flavour. I think blueberry, raspberry or cherry jam would work beautifully!

I’m on a vintage recipe kick lately so stay tuned for more coming up soon!
