Banana,Cocunut,Cashew Cream Tart
« on: May 12, 2008, 07:29:22 AM »

Found this on the internet. It is sooooooooo good and pretty easy and quick to put together. makes a great different desert.

Makes one 9-inch tart
1 1/2 cups whole pecans
Pinch of coarse salt
1 1/2 cups pitted dates
2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
1 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight and thoroughly drained
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup, and more to taste
1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
3/4 cup shredded coconut
3 or 4 ripe but firm bananas
Make tart shell: Coarsely chop pecans and salt in a food processor. Add dates; pulse until thoroughly combined, 15 to 20 seconds. Add syrup; pulse just until combined and mixture sticks together. Press nut mixture firmly and evenly into a 9-inch pie plate, wetting your fingers as needed. Set tart shell aside.
Make filling: Grind nuts to a coarse paste in a blender. Add water, syrup, and vanilla scrapings; blend until smooth, about 5 minutes, scraping sides as needed. Mixture should be the consistency of thick pancake batter. Set aside 2 tablespoons coconut; add remainder to blender, and process to combine. Pour into prepared shell, spreading evenly.
Thinly slice bananas on the bias; arrange in slightly overlapping rows, beginning at edge of tart. Sprinkle with reserved coconut; serve immediately.
Beware of those that verbally try to convince you they are Christian. Check your back pocket and make sure your wallet is still there. Next check your reputation to see if it is still intact. Chances are, one or both will be missing

I reckon I need to board my broomstick and come visit some of you great cooks. It's ages since we've had all these types of 'goodies', as our meals are prepared for us, where we live.

You have my mouth watering, as I read the recipes.
