Author Notes: For some reason, especially this year with all the snow we've had, I am really looking forward to the joys of warmer weather and vacations. I also think of people on beaches, sipping tropical drinks like Pina Coladas with umbrellas in them! That inspired the idea for this tart - the tastes of pineapple, lemon, cream cheese and coconut! The perfect late winter vacation where everything is fresh...all wrapped up in a wonderful tart! —aallender
