500 ml cake flour (240g)
10 ml baking powder
pinch salt
25 ml sugar
125 g margarine
3 large eggs, separated
40 ml cold water

200 ml white sugar (160g)
400 ml coconut (135g)
Apricot Jam
Egg whites from above 3 eggs separated

Pre-heat the oven to 180° C. Lightly coat 18 patty-pan cavities with cooking non-stick spray.
Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Rub in the margarine thoroughly.
Add in sugar, followed by the egg yolks and water, working lightly to bind together to form a ball of firm but pliable pastry.
Roll out the pastry fairly thinly on a floured worktop, and cut out 7cm diameter rounds.
Gently press them into the prepared patty-pans, and spoon a scant teaspoon of jam into the base of each.
Beat the egg whites until stiff.
Fold the sugar and coconut into the egg white.
Spoon generous dessertspoons of this topping over the jam, to cover completely.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Hints and Tips
Use this recipe to bake one large tart measuring 23 cm diameter.
Give the jam a rapid stir before scooping into the pastry cases; it thins the consistency somewhat, making the spreading into the small bases easy.
Do not be over-generous with the jam which may bubble its way through the topping if too liberal and spoil the look of the baked tartlets.



1 packet frozen short crust pastry

1 bottle/tin smooth apricot jam
2 egg whites
100g caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
4 tablespoons desiccated coconut

The process

heat your oven to 180 Celsius and spray your tart tray with spray and cook. Use a shallow tray not a muffin tray.

Flour a surface and your rolling pin lightly and roll out the pastry to about 3/4mm thick. Use a glass or round cutter to cut rounds to line the tray. use a fork to prick holes in the base and then put the tray into the oven for about 10 minutes or so until the bases are lightly browned.

You will be smelling that home baking smell and wondering why it has taken you so long to discover frozen pastry!

Remove the tray from the oven and allow them to cook in the tray while you make the meringue mixture.

Best the egg whites to stiff peaks and then add the caster sugar in 3 lots, beating well each time. Then add the vanilla essence and give it a last good beating. It should be glossy now. finally add the coconut and use a spoon or spatula to fold in the coconut, don’t beat it!

Fill each pastry case with the apricot jam to about 2/3 full and then place a nice dollop of the meringue mixture on top.

Pop the tray back into the oven for about 20 minutes until the meringue is crisp and slightly browned.

If you can… let them cool for a while before eating, the jam burns like hell and it allows the meringue to crisp up.
