Fresh Fruit Filling:
1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Prepare Single-Crust Pastry. On a lightly floured surface, flatten the ball of dough with your hands. Roll dough from center to edge into a circle about 11 inches in diameter. To transfer pastry, wrap it around the rolling pin. Unroll pastry into a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Ease pastry into tart pan, being careful not to stretch pastry. Press pastry into fluted side of tart pan. Trim pastry to the edge of the tart pan. Prick the bottom and side of pastry generously with the tines of a fork.

2. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until pastry is golden. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

3. In a small bowl, stir together sour cream and sugar; spread over cooled crust. Cover and chill for up to 2 hours. To serve, sprinkle with half of the coconut; arrange fruit on top. Sprinkle with remaining coconut.
Single-Crust Pastry:
