PIE {Coconut Cream & Apple}

You might have seen that I've been working on my pie crust lately...I'm getting pretty good at it and my boys are loving that I keep having to "practice" with lots of pie. I have made several pies in the last few weeks and it has been AWESOME every time. {and they are both SUPER easy}.

I have used two different recipes for the crust. THIS one is easier to work with, and THIS one taste a little better. They are both good and they have turned out each time, but personally I like the taste of the Crisco one better however it is MUCH harder to work with!


2 pkg Coconut Cream Pudding
2 1/2 Cups Cold Milk
1 8oz Cool Whip
Coconut for topping

Mix pudding mixes together with cold milk. Whisk well and let sit for 5 minutes to start setting. Pour Coconut cream mixture into pie crust. Top with Cool Whip. Let sit in refrigerator for 30 minutes. 

In a frying pan, toast about 1/2 cup of coconut. I just toast it until it starts to brown. {it takes a minute to get it started and then it turns brown pretty quick so be sure to watch it carefully}

Top pie with toasted coconut and ENJOY!!


Using the same pie crust {but you do NOT have to cook it first}

4 Cups wedged apples
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar, depending on sweetness of apples, to taste
2 -4 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, to your taste
1 teaspoon cinnamon, to your taste
1 cup apple juice or 1 cup water, if you don't have juice, try to have juice, it adds to the flavor

Sprinkle lemon juice over apples in saucepan. Mix next four ingredients together and add to apples. Mix well. Add very hot juice to pan, (I microwave juice for 2 minutes) cook, stirring constantly until thickened. Remove from heat and cool.

Fill a well chilled 9 inch pastry lined pan and cover with top crust. Bake on lowest rack at 425* for 10 minutes, and finish baking on center rack until bubbling, about 30 minutes more.

ENJOY YOUR PIES!! {I know we did!!!}
