This post is actually about the pie crust. A chocolate pie crust. The Sweet Melissa Sundays recipe for this week is Chocolate Pie Crust. I decided to make a Coconut Cream Pie. The recipe for the coconut cream came from The Essential Baker.
I made 1/2 a recipe of both the crust and the filling, which made enough for three 4-inch pies. My trusty side kick Diego helped me with pies. Paula worked diligently on the computer as our tech specialist.
I did not try the pies, but my taste-testers all approved. Thank you to Donna of L’Amour de Tarte for hosting this week’s selection. If you would like the recipe, visit her blog or buy the book. The recipe for the Coconut Cream Pie is HERE.
This look yummy! Chocolate Crust and Coconut Cream Pie, great combinations.
Delish, I love shredded coconut 🙂
Such a pretty pie and the help is adorable.
Looks like a great combination. I would have thought of chocolate cream pie but this is more interesting.
The filling sounds really good Wendy! Love the photos of your help too 🙂 I was disappointed by the pie crust but I guess they can’t all be winners.
The filling sounds amazing! Coconut and chocolate? YUM!
Great idea to use coconut..your mini pies look very good. Im glad your family enjoyed them!
I made turtle pie!
Chocolate & coconut are such a winning combination. Your lil pie is adorable, as well as your helpers!
What do you mean you didn’t try it? What, because it wasn’t ice cream? 🙂
What a cutie pie (Diego, of course, and Paula too)! And the pie is pretty cute, BTW.
What a fun looking pie. Love the coconut shreds.
Yum–chocolate and coconut is such a great combo. What a cute pie!
yum, sounds great. Lucky to have great helpers!
Cute kiddos! I got the SM book for Christmas and can’t wait to make something from it, so many great recipes.
I’m not sure what looks better – your pie or your lil helpers!?
Love chocolate and coconut together.
Chocolate and coconut sound like the perfect combo! Your kitchen staff are adorable!!!
I love coconut cream pie! Never thought about trying it with a chocolate crust. Yum!
Wait ’til your little helpers want to be the head chef and don’t want to follow the recipe exactly. 🙂
Very very cute, both the little pie, and the little helper! Coconut cream pie is one of my favorites…would it be rude to scoop all that out and hand the crust over for someone else to eat? Yeah, I thought so.
