Coconut Filled Tartlets - East Indian#Foodieextravaganza

These tartlets are must in our Christmas Sweets Platter. To fill these tartlets my hubby helped me, since we must be quick while filling, the filling hardens quickly.
For our event this month for Foodie Extravaganza Party, we are giving a Virtual Baby Shower for Lauren, the author/founder of our group. These tartlets are prefect for the event which have the color pink and blue.

200 Grams All Purpose Flour
75 Grams Clarified Butter
60 Grams Powdered Sugar
½ Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
3 -4 Tablespoons Chilled Water or as required
Rub clarified butter into flour till it resembles bread crumbs. Add the powdered sugar and essence mix it well into the flour. Now add chilled water just enough bring it into a dough. Do not knead the dough. The dough will be soft and crumbly. Cling wrap it and refrigerate for 30 minutes. 
Then take the dough and lightly knead it. Pinch a small ball and press it into tart moulds. Prick the tartlets with a fork. Make a handles of the remaining and bake these for just 4 -5 minutes. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 15 to 18 minutes or until the top start to turn slightly golden.
Remove and cool on a rack. Then un mold and keep it side to cool completely. These tartlets can me made well in advance they stay good for a month or more, if stored in an airtight container.
For The Coconut Filling
This process should be completed quickly as soon as the filling it ready or else it will harden and you will not be able to fill the tarts.
1 Cup Packed Freshly Grated Coconut
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
½ Cup Water
½ Teaspoon Rose Essence
In 2 bowls add a pinch of gel color or liquid color and keep aside. Pink, blue and white, these are the colors.
Mix all ingredients in a non stick pan and cook stirring continuously till dry for 7 -8 minutes, the sugar should melt.
Divide the filling in the respective bowls and mix it well. Fill the tarts with the three colors. Press a handle in the center and let them dry.
Store them in container. The shelf life of the filled tarts is 5 - 6 days in our Mumbai temperature. If you live in a cold climate then these will last for 10 - 12 days.
