The pic is not mine, but if you follow these quick easy steps you can add something tasty and different to your parties or even for the holidays.. This something loved in the Islands..

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

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. And your all done..

Happy baking!!!
