Coconut Cream Pie Bars
I love pie! I do not love making pie crust, actually I don’t like rolling and shaping pie crust. I have a hard time making it pretty. So I’ve been making shortbread crusts for pies and it is my favorite thing ever.
I first tried the shortbread crust with my Strawberry Slab Pie and it was definitely the hit of the summer! It is also the perfect combo with this easy coconut cream filling. Of course I need to keep testing this out, you know, so I can make more pies!
The Coconut Cream filling is super easy and doesn’t have to be cooked, which also means it chills faster! Which means I get to eat it sooner rather than later.
A few weeks back there was a facebook post circulating about keeping reading alive where you send out a book and then friends of friends send books to you. I sent out a book called The Education of Little Tree that my sister-in-law passed on to me. I really, really loved it and I don’t think it’s that well known.
One of the books I got in return was My Grandmother Said to Tell You She’s Sorry. I really enjoyed it. If your grandmother was your super hero growing up, it’s a must- read. I don’t think I would’ve picked this book on my own, but it’s one of the best books I’ve read in a while.
The books couldn’t have arrived at a better time, my Kindle tumbled to the tile floor a few weeks back and now it is in my rather large stack of dead Kindles. I think you can get them repaired but I haven’t took the time to look. Some of them are cracked and others won’t charge.
Anyway in the meantime, I’m on the hunt for something good to read and I’d love to hear any suggestions that you have.
If you have a weekend get together or back-to-school potluck coming up, these easy Coconut Cream Pie Bars are perfect!
