Mini Coconut Cream Pies

Happy Wednesday, folks! I have been having a grand old time with my sister, brother-in-law, 2 nieces and nephew. Like tons of fun! Yesterday it was raining like crazy so we were stuck inside. {A perfect excuse not to run!} My sister has an X Box Kinect with a bunch of workouts AND a super fun dance game. It was such a fun workout! I loved it! My daughter was really confused at first….like “what on earth are you doing Mom {you weirdo}?” But after a few minutes everyone was dancing along! The little things that seem so insignificant are the things that seriously bring me the most happiness in life. We also did a bunch of these photos:

We are so attractive, right? HA! Especially that little rascal of mine picking her nose with two fingers! Yikes….what am I going to do with that child? Also, I may or may not have told my sister I would erase these ’embarrassing’ photos of her….and by erase I mean publish 🙂 {I’m such a good sister! HAHA!} Lucky for me she doesn’t check my blog diligently. Score.

Mini Coconut Cream Pies

Anyways, here is one of the recipes I made for that baby shower I co-hosted a few weeks ago. {If you missed that post, check it out here.} These are the super cute, super easy mini version of coconut cream pie. I use pre-rolled pie crusts and instant vanilla pudding. You cut out 2 inch circles of dough and bake them into tarts. Then you make the pudding and stir in coconut extract. Fill the tarts up and top them with whipped cream and coconut. See? Easy. Really delicious and super coconutty! Just how I like it. Are you a coconut lover like me?

Give these a whirl today! I know you guys will love this recipe. Have a great day!

*If you are making these pies in advance, then I would recommend adding the cornstarch to act as a stabilizer. If not, then omit it completely.*

    I’m always the one to ask a dumb question. If making ahead of time, do you put the cornstarch in the whipping cream? Or the pudding?

    1. Lauren

      Into the whipped cream. A lot of times, it will lose air and look like it’s melting if you make it in advance. So, I just add in the cornstarch for some extra assurance.

    These look delicious! Silly question, but what cookie cutter did you use to make such perfect little pies?

    1. Lauren

      It was a small flower shaped cookie cutter. Look for that or maybe a circle with fluted edges. Hope you find one!

    I was wondering if there are any of your mini pies that can be frozen ahead of time and then topped with whipping cream the day of the event?

    1. Lauren

      Any pie that you can find in the freezer section of the grocery store are ones you can freeze. I’d stick with pumpkin and fruit pies.
