  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, stir coconut milk, condensed milk, pineapple juice, rum, cornstarch and egg yolk with whisk. Cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes, beating constantly with whisk, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and continue to stir constantly 1 minute longer. Remove from heat; stir in extracts. Pour into shallow dish; cool 10 minutes. Press plastic wrap on filling to prevent tough layer from forming on top. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until completely cool.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Lightly brush melted butter on all sides of each boat. Sprinkle raw sugar to cover entire boat. Place boats on cookie sheet. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until browned on edges and firm to the touch. Boats will crisp as cooled. Remove to cooling rack to cool.
  • 3
    Fill each cooled boat with generous 2 tablespoons filling; top with whipped cream, and garnish with pineapple, nuts and coconut. Serve immediately. Store any remaining boats in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • To toast nuts, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
