Lay the 4 pieces flat with the big one on the bottom and the 3 smaller ones on top. 2) Place leaves in hand and close hand slightly to make leaves in a bowl-like shape, into which you pour the cream. 3) Pour ~ a small cup of coconut cream inside the leaf structure and close outside edges of the leaves to enclose the cream, making the leaves like a ball-like structure. 4) Wrap total package in aluminum foil, twisting the top to conceal and hold the package tight. 5) Put in oven and cook for about an hour at 475 degrees F. (quite high).
