For filling:
  • In a medium bowl lightly beat the egg with a fork. Stir in brown sugar, vanilla, and salt just until smooth. Stir in cranberries and coconut. Spoon about 2 measuring teaspoons of the cranberry-coconut mixture into each pastry-lined muffin cup. Be sure not to overfill pastry or tassies will stick to the cups.
