This pie is going to be a serious problem for me. (And you too!)It is one of the most delicious things I’ve ever tasted, and it’s way, way too easy to make. So confession time: This past week Joe had been out of town, filming. Being home alone, I made things that I super love, like my Pear & Caramelized Onion Flatbread – and this. I made it on a Tuesday morning. It was gone by Thursday evening… and I didn’t have any help.
I have no regrets though (besides possibly not fitting in my jeans next week.) My real concern is that I pretty much always have all the ingredients on and its ready in less time than it takes me to watch an episode of The Mindy Project. So let’s talk about how deliciously easy this is…
7 ingredients, and 25 minutes. That’s all you need to make this insane deliciousness. Now, do you see why I basically lost my mind over this pie? Well, that and my dessert addiction. How good does that look!? Honestly, I started off with good intentions. Knowing that I had created the most delicious thing ever, I planned to pop it in the freezer and defrost it for Super Bowl Sunday. I had a plan!!!
It really is perfect for game day, because the firm graham cracker crust lets you pick up your slice and eat it with your hands (she says with experience). So you see, my plan was good… It just didn’t happen.
Fortunately, this is easy enough that I can make another one in 20 minutes right before we go to our friend’s place to watch the game. I will try not to eat it on the 10-minute car ride over.For vegans, and those avoiding dairy, this pie is your jam (my new favorite expression). It’s naturally dairy free without having to switch any ingredients.
The big trick to this pie is the whipped coconut cream – which some people find tricky. But it really doesn’t have to be! I also use to struggle with coconut cream – until I switched brands. Being Spanish, I’m a pretty loyal Goya user (no one’s paying me to say this), and if they make it, I’m generally buying their version. Plus it’s cheaper. But every time I used their Coconut Milk to make whipped coconut cream it would be an epic, epic fail.
One day when my market was out of Goya I had to get Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk because that was all they had. With no effort, I got perfect coconut cream – and I haven’t had a can fail me yet. I don’t know why it always works, but it does. (It’s not available everywhere, but you can order some through the link – and if you have another favorite no-fail brand, let me know in the comments!
So what snacks are you making to watch the game? Are you doing mostly savory things (Like my Cheezy Stuffed Pretzel Bites?) A mix? Sweet stuff? I can tell you one thing – I plan to eat my weight in guacamole today. It just has to happen.
