Ingredients

Coconut Mango and Pineapple Custard:
4 eggs
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup mango puree (1 mango)
3/4 cup fresh pineapple puree or crushed pineapple (drained)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup 2 % milk
Graham Crumb Crust:
1 1/2 cups graham crumbs
1/2 cup unsalted melted butter
Tropical Glaze:
2 cups sliced fruit (mangoes and pineapple)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup peach jam
shredded coconut for the top (toasted in the oven until golden)

Preparation

1
Graham Crumb Crust:

Preheat the oven to 350º F. Line the bottom of a 9" spring-form pan with parchment paper and butter the sides of the pan.

In a bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and the butter.

Mix with a wooden spoon and transfer to the prepared spring-form pan.

With your hands or a meat tenderizer, press firmly making sure to cover the bottom of the spring-form pan.

Bake for 50-60 minutes. Given the addition of the fresh fruit puree I went with a longer baking time. The interior was still moist and held together when cut to serve.

Cool slightly before removing from the pan.
