(As I announce this recipe with my head held down - seeing as it's now 2 days after Easter)
Hey there sweets!
So guess what, I have you all prepared for Easter in 2017 with this recipe (hehehe)! Your welcome!
This recipe was under $13 and quite simple to make!
Above is the advertisement and recipe from Jell-O themselves. I actually found this recipe searching through the interwebs and it was posted on one of my inspirations sites (aka Chronically Vintage)
Anywho's, it screamed my name, so I had to make it!
IT WAS EASY AS PIE! (get it! I'm funny)...wait a second...who ever came up with the phrase easy as pie...pie is not easy to make...well home made pie. I must google this..
Easter Sunday Pie Recipe:
- 1 package Jell-O Vanilla Pudding (I got the big package)
- 2 teaspoons gelatin
- 2 cups milk
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- Dash of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup Baker's coconut, toasted (7 min. - 350* - check constantly and stir)
- 1 baked 9in' pie shell
Richer than chiffon. Lighter than the usual coconut cream. This smooth-as-velvet pie is a dream of delicate flavor and texture when you make it with Jell-o Vanilla Pudding and Pie Filling.
Combine pudding powder and gelatin. Add milk and cook as directed on package. Cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
Combine cream, vanilla, and salt. Whip until mixture holds its shape. Fold into pudding. Then fold in 1/2 cup of coconut. Place in bowl of ice water and chill until mixture begins to hold its shape and stiffen. Turn into pie shell. Chill. Garnish with remaining toasted coconut. Decorate with candy Easter eggs.
As you may or may not have noticed the coconut looks a little on the dark side, which to you I reply as my grandpa would have said, "the burnt bits have the best flavor!". So there.
If you like coconut, and vanilla pudding this is the dessert for you.
I also don't necessarily think it's just an Easter "delicacy". It's a cute little Spring/Summer pie for a little party or picnic. It's definitely worth check out!
