Ingredients

  • 1½ cups half and half
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk, beaten
  • ¾ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup corn starch
  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 1 tsp coconut extract
Instructions

  2. Coat a mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cookie dough and all purpose flour. Knead together until well blended.
  4. Shape dough into one inch balls. Press cookie dough in bottom and up the sides of each muffin cup, forming cup shape.

  9. Stir in 1½ cups coconut and coconut extract.
  10. Spoon coconut custard into cooled cookie cups.
  11. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  12. Top with Reddi-wip and toasted coconut.
