Coconut Gizzadas

Coconut Gizzadas

If you like coconut I think you’ll like these! These individual coconut tarts (or ‘gizzadas’ in Jamaica) are a traditional sweet snack in the Caribbean, and upon finding grated fresh coconut going cheap in the freezer of my local supermarket I decided it was time to pay homage to my roots! The pastry case is traditionally crimped by hand but for ease and a neater finish I’ve used fluted tins. A word of warning – desiccated coconut will not yield the right results (trust me I’ve tried!) so either use coconut you’ve grated fresh or use frozen (if so, defrost overnight in the fridge before using).
