Snowy, Flaky Goodness

Dec 2, 2010


I have a confession, I subscribe to Southern Living. The magazine I ridiculed my mom for years for reading, I now get in the mail. And I’m not gonna lie I actually like it. They have amazing recipes in every issue, which is the main reason I subscribe. Their December issue is always the best. I think I dog-eared a recipe on like every page this year. If you snubbed this magazine before, I highly suggest you check it out.

This recipe is from the current December 2010 issue. We made these for my brother-in-law’s birthday last weekend. We did them instead of cake and it was so nice because everyone each got their own little tart! I think they would make the perfect dessert for a holiday party. The white sprinkles of coconut look like snow to give a festive feel! If you like coconut you will love these. They are as tasty as they look!

    you had me at Coconut!

  6. I love Southern Living but never thought I would growing up! My mom and both of my grandmas were avid SL readers and I just did not get it. But now I anxiously await each month's magazine. The tarts look amazing!

  7. I have a soft spot for SL, too. And these tarts look so yummy – just printed the recipe out; thank you!!! xo
