Serves: 1 large tart
Gluten-Free Tart Crust:
  • 100 Grams (3.5 ounces) Coconut Flour
  • 100 Grams (3.5 ounces) Almond Flour or Very Finely Ground Almonds (for nut-free, use chickpea / garbanzo bean flour)
  • 100 Grams (3.5 ounces) Coconut Oil or Dairy-Free Margarine
  • 1 Teaspoon Raw Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 Ounce (approximately 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons) Cornstarch (if you cannot eat corn, use potato starch)
  • 1-1/4 cups Full Fat Canned Coconut Milk
  • 3 Tablespoons Orange-Flavored Liqueur (such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier)
  • 8 Ounces Fresh Berries or Other Seasonal Fruit
  • Mint Leaves, for garnish, optional
  1. Preheat your oven to 325ºF and lightly grease an 8-inch pie or tart pan.
  2. Place the coconut flour, almond flour, coconut oil or margarine, and sugar in a food processor or mixing bowl, and briefly blend or mix to combine.
  3. Add the egg, and blend or mix briefly, to combine.
  4. Press the mixture into the base and up the sides of your prepared pan, making it as even as possible.
  5. Prick the base of the pastry with a fork, and bake it for 25 minutes, or until the crust is lightly tanned.
  6. While the crust is cooling, prepare the filling.
  7. Place the cornstarch in a small pan, and gradually whisk in a small amount of the coconut milk until you have a smooth paste. Gradually whisk in the rest of the coconut milk.
  8. Heat the mixture over low heat, continuously whisking, until the cream thickens.
  9. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer, then remove the cream from the heat, and stir in the liqueur.
  10. Allow it to cool at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes.
  11. Spoon the coconut cream into the pastry shell and smooth out.
  12. Slice the fruit, if necessary, and arrange over the cream.
  13. Decorate with mint leaves, if desired, and serve at room temperature.
