Basically it's all about music (the aliens speak in power chords). There are three islands, with three basic climates: temperate, tropical, and cold. Our group is trying to make a food from each region. The cold region is already taken care of and I wanted to try something for the tropical region, most likely a dessert.
I'm at a total loss when it comes to tropical things, because all I can think of is pineapple!
4 cups coconut milk*
2-1/2 cups water
1-1/4 cups sugar
1 cup cornstarch
Combine coconut milk and water and stir until smooth. Add sugar and cornstarch. Cook over low heat until thickened and shiny.
Make a dough with 1/2 cup butter or margarine, 3 tablespoons of sugar, 1 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of chopped nuts. Press the dough into a pan and bake it for 15 minutes at 350°F (175°C). When the crust is cool, pour the just-made haupia over the top, chill it, and then serve with whipped cream and a sprinkling of plain or toasted shredded coconut.
