Inspired by the cocktail of the same name, the Piña Colada tart is a very fragrant dessert made up of a traditional shortcrust pastry shell, a filling of coconut cream flavored al rum and a decoration of slices ofpineapple And dehydrated coconut. A real beauty to bring to the table and share with friends for a summer after dinner.

To prepare the Piña Colada tart we used it crafty mold, of the same type already used for the soft tart. It is a low mold without a hinge, provided with a groove at the edges of the bottom. The pasta base, once cooked and unmolded, thus presents a perfect hollow to fill. If you do not have it, you can use a common tart mold, to be completely coated with the shortcrust pastry.

Coconut and pineapple, the protagonists of this recipe, are much loved tropical fruits and true symbols of summer: to conclude a dinner with friends, try the pineapple tiramisu and melon with cold coconut cream.
