Tropical Mandarin Pie

79

Here I have made my own pastry case, and the filling is creamy coconut custard with added mandarins. The flavours are really quite wonderful, and with every bite, you get a juicy squirt of mandarins, a creamy coconut flavour and a crispy pastry texture. The hardest part about this recipe is the waiting for it to chill! Please enjoy.
