Pucker up and kiss me

Well, I can tell you that Grumpy won't be puckering up no matter what because he would not eat these!  He is not a big lemon fan.  Thankfully my brother liked them.  My SIL didn't mind the lemon filling but she's not a big coconut fan.  My mother?  Well she will eat anything sweet.  I have actually been known to call my father to let him know my mother was bringing home a treat for him because I didn't trust her to not eat it!  ha ha. Seriously!!  This is a Cooking Light Recipe I found in my Five Star Recipes cookbook.  It is actually on the cover - one of the things that attracted my attention to the book!

These weren't too hard but somewhat time consuming.  I'm not entirely happy with the tart shell - was too thick and floury for me.  I probably would change the recipe up some if I were to make it again.  However, none of them were thrown away and the filling was awesome.  Probably just a matter of too much crust for me.  My next attempt will be lime - I think lime goes much better with coconut.  Don't you?  :)


Lemon Macaroon Tartlets and Macaroon Tart Shells are on myrecipes.com.

I don't love lemon either, but how could you resist those!! I would have had to try a few to be sure!

Joanne said...

I'm all about the lime idea...lime and coconut are classic. Maybe these would do better in pie form?

You put the lime in the coconut and your stir it all up...now you have me going. I for one love lemon though. It is my chocolate:D

Frieda said...

Yes ~ lime and coconut are a great pair! I'm sure you can change up the crust to make it how you like it...

Lemon AND Coconut? Two of my favorites! I will need to try these. Thanks for sharing.

I love lemon desserts... almost as much as chocolate! :) Looks yummy!

I think lime is perfect with coconut, especially key limes. Sorry grumpy wouldn't eat them. My partner loves citrus and I probably can't keep him away. :)

I like lemony desserts and with coconut, why not both in one place, fantastic!

Cheers,

I love lemon and coconut, so I'm sure I'd be happy snacking on these.

Cheryl said...

Ohh I love lemon and coconut so they are going on my list

Mags said...

I'll do the puckering up, but I'm going to leave the kissing to Grumpy.

I'd have to eat these all by myself because my family is anti-lemon and anti-coconut.

Linda said...

Well they are very pretty in spite of the shell--the filling looks delish.

These look very good to me! I love lemon and I love the crust, so sounds like a perfect treat!

Ingrid said...

Can I have Grumpy's share? I love lemon (citrus) desserts. That's cute that you call your Dad so he knows something scrumpdiliumptious is comin' his way.

Happy Friday, HoneyB!
