Dear Project Foodie Users,

Sadly and with a heavy heart, I have decided to shut down Project Foodie on December 28th, 2015.

The past 9 years have been a wonderful journey — I met many amazing people, learned an incredible amount and had a great time helping food lovers (including myself) keep track of recipes.

I hope that you too have enjoyed Project Foodie and the fruits of my labor, and that of the various people who helped me over the years with Project Foodie.

For those of you who would like the details of recipes in your recipe box please reach out to me ( This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it )

Recipe from Back to Baking by Anna Olson (Whitecap Books Ltd., 2011)

ImageMakes 18 mini tarts

Coconut milk makes a richly decadent custard filling, replacing any need for eggs when using cornstarch for thickening.

  • 1 recipe Key Lime Pie crust (see here)
  • 1 tin (398 mL) coconut milk
  • 1 vanilla bean or 1 Tbsp (15 mL) vanilla bean paste
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) cornstarch
  • 1 cup (250 mL) fresh blueberries



Preheat the oven to 350°f (175°c) and lightly grease a 24-cup mini muffin tin.

Prepare the graham crust and press it into the bottom and sides of the muffin cups. Bake for 10 minutes, then cool to room temperature.

Pour the coconut milk into a saucepot and scrape in the seeds of the vanilla bean (or stir in the vanilla bean paste). In a bowl, stir the sugar and cornstarch together and whisk into the coconut milk, then turn the heat to medium and whisk until the mixture comes to a simmer and thickens, about 6 minutes. Scrape the custard into a bowl, cover the surface of the custard with plastic wrap, and allow to cool to room temperature.

Once cooled, spoon the coconut filling into the mini tart shells and top each with 3 blueberries. Chill for at least 2 hours in the tin before popping them out to serve.

The tarts will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Note from Anna's kitchen

You can make the coconut filling up to a day ahead of time and chill it before filling your tart shells. But before using the filling, it's best to purée it in a food processor or use an immersion blender to make it smooth.
