    Directions

    1. For the filling: In a saucepan, mix the condensed milk and coconut milk. Let it simmer. Add the vanilla and the cornstarch mixture. Stir in the dessicated coconut. Let it cool.
    2. For the crust: Put the flour into a large bowl. Dig a hole in the mound of flour. Add butter, water, and egg blend in using your fingertips or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal with some (roughly pea-size) butter lumps.
    3. Turn the mixture onto a lightly floured surface, then knead gently with heel of your hand to bring dough together. Lightly flour a pastry board or clean table top. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough on a pastry board until desired thickness-- I wanted mine to be a little thick. Use a saucer as a template to cut circles using a cutter or a sharp knife.
