Cherry Haupia Tarts for Two

June 11, 2017 | 4 comments

It’s the summer! I’m woefully aware that 2 weeks of summer have already gone by and the largest peep I’ve had at this place is well, nowhere to be found – unless you count here. But 3 online classes and one vacation later, I’m here, as promised, with CHERRIES and COCONUT and PIEEEEE.

Fruit pies are my favorite, but I could care less for the mushy, wet fillings. I go for the flaky, buttery crust and the fruit is just there as a guilt reliever – like I’ve already ate 3 slices by there’s fruit so it must be healthy and good for me. Please tell me I’m not the only one in this frightfully delicious situation.

With the recent health trends, coconut milk has become the new healthy, and cherries have always been healthy so I combined them with pie crust and here we are! Creamy and slightly crunchy, ivory white and ruby red, these tarts are a real stunner! I barely had to do any styling for the food because they look so delicious on their own. 😛

Some of you might be wondering haupia?! what?! that sounds like a fish! I thought that too at first when I saw them on Two Red Bowl’s gorgeous blog (GUYS she’s totally awesome go check her out if you haven’t already), but being the queen of flavor combinations that she is, fish + mango + tapioca + pomelo just doesn’t make sense. A quick look at the ingredients revealed that it’s actually a gloriously solid coconut pudding from Hawaii. I don’t think custards get cooler than that.

Anywho go make these, put them in them in the fridge and eat them cold because it’s getting real hot outside. You won’t regret it.

    I feel like this is almost too pretty to eat (keyword: almost). I live for fruity desserts in the summer, so this is right up my alley! I’ll try it out as soon as I get some cherries (all the ones here have been too sour ?). Happy Summer Break!! ??

    Ok, wow. These look so good! Can’t wait to try these out!
    I adore fruit pies too, although, for me, I prefer the filling to the crust, but oh well. To each their own.
