Tarts of all kinds are a traditional dessert throughout the Caribbean Islands, which derive from British trade ventures of a century or two ago that introduced the popular British Bakewell Tarts to Caribbean cooks. There are numerous versions of Caribbean tarts that largely depend on island preferences and availability of local fruits. This version is a favorite from the Bahamas, and it features a Bahamian favorite--coconut--with a touch of pineapple.
