“An Aussie version of Pineapple Cream Pie, this beautiful dessert pays tribute to the gorgeously aromatic white-&-gold tropical frangipani flower. I love coconut, so I've jazzed up this Golden Circle recipe with coconut milk and shredded coconut...mmmm! I use a simple biscuit crumb crust, but any favourite pastry shell will do. The time for the preparation of the shell is not included.”
