If you are looking for a unique combination of flavors with your mini fruit tarts, then this berry and coconut recipe is sure to be of interest.

The creamy filling will need milk, egg yolks, vanilla extract, butter, sugar, cornstarch, and salt. You can also use some currant jelly to create a tasty glaze.
