Blue Ribbon Recipe
These coconut turnovers are divine. When you eat one, you bite into flaky layers of buttery pastry. It's filled with a moist, sweet, caramelized coconut center. The turnovers have a tropical flare to them and would be delicious for breakfast, dessert or a sweet treat. No one will ever need to know how simple they are to prepare.
Note: You'll want to cook the filling until about half the liquid is cooked out. It will look a little darker in color and be stickier, but shouldn't be brown. If it gets overcooked, add about 1 Tbsp of water to the warm mixture to bring back a moist consistency. The Test Kitchen
