And The Desserts Just Don't Stop

Coconut Cream Pie
Coconut Cream Pie

Made with gingersnap cookies, sweetened shredded coconut, melted butter, half-and-half, egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch, pure vanilla extract, and whipped cream.

I love a good coco pie!  Who, in their right mind, doesn’t?  Now, I’ve had some great coconut cream pies in my life before—like at The Capital Grille, for instance.  Needless to say, theirs was so good I decided to try and make my own homemade coco pie to see how it’d turn out—and, I have to say, I’m proud of myself.

Let me tell you, I definitely deserve this kind of lovin’ in my life.  When you have a hard time getting the kind of love you want from a decent human being—go straight to the coco pie, my friends!  It’ll make up for it many times over.

Try making yourself this uber coconut cream pie and just set it on your lap and eat it while you watch a good action flick.  And if you didn’t already know, I’m a big believer in—if you’re just going to go back for a 3rd and 4th slice anyway—just eat straight outta the pan and save yourself some time.

Monkey Bread

Made with canned biscuits, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter.

I still haven’t figured out why this is called Monkey Bread, but whatever.  All I can say is—it’s sticky.  It’s just one big doughy, sugary, cinnamony (probably not a real word, but I can’t be worried about it) mess.  Help yourself.

Special K No-Bake Cookies
Special K No-Bake Cookies

Made with butterscotch chips, crunchy peanut butter, peanuts, and Special K cereal.

You really need yourself some milk with these cookies—they are that sweet and good.  But, once you have your milk in hand, you can easily just eat one right after the other back-to-back.  Next thing you know, you look around and realize you probably should have tripled the recipe to begin with.

The simplest cookie you could ever make with only 4 ingredients:

  • butterscotch chips
  • crunchy peanut butter
  • peanuts
  • Special K cereal

That’s it!  Aaaannnnnnd, we’re done.  No baking, no nothing.  Just warm, mix, shape into cookies, let them sit a couple of hours, then devour them.  How hard is that?

So, if you have nothing else to do today, stuff that hole in your face with every one of these desserts after you’ve made them and make sure there’s ice-cold milk nearby.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  Everyone at least deserves some coconut cream pie lovin’ in their life many times over.  Ooooo and aahhh.
