Original recipe yields 24 mini tartlets



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease 24 mini muffin cups.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine 2 cups coconut, sugar, flour, vanilla and egg whites; stir well. Divide mixture evenly among the prepared mini muffin cups, pressing mixture into bottom and up sides of muffin cups (use cooking spray on hands to prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands).
  3. Bake in the preheated 400 degree F (200 degrees C) oven until the edges are browned. Cool 2 minutes in the muffin tins on a wire rack. Remove from tins and cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. Prepare lemon pudding mix according to package instructions. Spoon lemon mixture into each macaroon tartlet shell. Top with 2 teaspoons of whipped topping sprinkled with 1/2 teaspoon coconut.

I use the same recipe for the coconut tart, but have used a variety of different fillings. Chocolate "ganache" - 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 TB of milk, melt in microwave (30-60 seconds more or less, stirring frequently) and then stir until smooth. I do this in a Pyrex glass measuring cup and then just pour the chocolate filling into the tart cups. I sprinkle a little coconut on top (which I sometimes color with food coloring- like red, white and blue for 4th of July or red and green for Christmas) OR put a raspberry on top OR a little crushed almonds on top for an Almond Joy flavor. Lemon curd - just dollop lemon curd in the tart shell and top with a raspberry and then sprinkle with powdered sugar. Chocolate Cheesecake - just dollop refrigerated ready-made cheesecake filling into the tart shell and top with chocolate ganache. Raspberry cheesecake - put a small dollop of raspberry jelly in the tart and top with ready-made cheesecake filling and top with a raspberry and /or a little chocolate ganache. Really, the combinations are endless. I personally don't think pudding and cool whip sound very appetizing for these delicious tart shells.



This was the hit of the shower I threw this past weekend! I made the macaroons a day in advance, substituted lemon curd for the pudding and piped real whipped cream on top with a snipped sandwich bag. Heavenly!



A nice fresh tasting summertime treat. To get a more intense lemon flavor I added lemon zest (the yellow peel from a fresh lemon)to the pudding mixture and topped the Cool Whip with coconut and lemon zest for added taste and presentation.
