Orange Custard

Submitted by Fayette Woman reader Maria Jammal

2 cups fresh orange juice

3 Tbsp. cornstarch

1 Tbsp. powdered sugar

1 Tbsp. unsalted butter

Shredded coconut to cover each slice at the end

Combine the orange juice, powdered sugar, and cornstarch together in a pan, mix well, then place it on the stove at a low setting and keep mixing it nonstop until it gets to a thick paste. Once it turns into a thick paste, add the butter and continue to mix until the butter is fully melted. Remove it from the stove and place it in a cylinder cup. Place the cup in the refrigerator for 3 hours. Place coconut shreds into a plate. Take the cup out of the fridge, flip the cup over onto the coconut, and let it slide out. Continue to roll it on the coconut until well coated. Cut into your preferred sized slices and continue to cover each slice with the coconut, and then you’re ready to serve!
