Roll out your puff pastry on a floured surface and from the edges cut 8 strips, about a cm wide, leaving a square piece of pastry left to fit in a round pie or tart greased dish. Fill the pastry with the coconut and twist the strips and place four strips down and four strips across, pressing down the edges. Use a fork to press the edges to give a pattern. Brush the pastry generously with egg wash, bake in a preheated oven at 200 deg C until golden brown, about 25-30 minutes
