Coconut Pastries

There is just something down home and yummy about this treat. It has become a family favorite of ours over the last two years, and a Thanksgiving tradition. If you love coconut, this recipe is a MUST HAVE.

The Ingredients:
1 package Puff Pastry
3 eggs
1 cup of milk
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of coconut
1 tsp vanilla extract
Powdered sugar for garnish

The Instructions:
Unroll the sheets of puff pastry and cut each one into 9 squares.


Place on a cookie sheet bake in a 400ยบ oven until done. Remove from oven and cool down completely.

In the meantime, in a pan, add the eggs, milk, sugar, coconut and vanilla.


Cook over medium heat until it thickens, remove from heat and allow to cool down.


Open each pastry square and add a tablespoon of the filling or a little more. Sometimes I overdo it just because I love it so much.


Cover back up and sprinkle with powdered sugar. YUM!
