Like most countries in the Pacific, the Marshall Islands is known for importing much of their pantry ingredients. While Macadamia nuts aren’t Marshallese per se, the rich nut goes perfectly with local coconut. Bottom line: it’s one heck of a pie.

  3. With your fingers, gently spread the coconut evenly across the tart base, then whisk together the remaining ingredients – honey, melted butter, coconut milk, brown sugar, and eggs. Fold in the mountain of macadamia nuts.
  4. Pour the thick filling into the prepared tart pan and bake at 375F for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 325F and cook for another 25-35 minutes.The pie will emerge all puffed up. Have no fear! It will flatten once cooled completely.

Recipe Notes

You can serve this chilled or warm. If you serve it warm, still cool the pie completely before popping back in the oven to reheat. This will ensure it sets up completely.
