Perhaps you can tell from some my other recipes, (candy apple bites) I prefer to make smaller desserts. It’s been my experience that when a number of different desserts are presented, one generally desires to try a little bit of each. Here is my favorite way of presenting multiple desserts, in cream pie bites.
- Various Flavors of Cream Pie Filling:
- Phyllo dough or Pie Crust
- mini-tart pan
Prepare your mini tarts, using either phyllo dough or your favorite pie crust. If you don’t want to mess with making a pie crust, use a rolled pie crust from the refrigerated section of your favorite grocery store.
Bake them, in this photo we’ve used phyllo pastry.
To make Tropical Cream Pie Bites– add a single slice of banana to the bottom of each shell.
Add a spoonful of Banana Cream Pie filling or Coconut Cream pie filling.
Add a dollop of Whipped Cream, garnish with a fresh slice of banana or pineapple.
These can be made in a variety of flavors:
- Chocolate Cream with Fresh Strawberries
- Chocolate cream with fresh Cherries
- Coconut Cream Pie
- Tropical Bites- coconut cream with pineapple
- Homemade Applesauce with Whipped Cream
If you’re really in a hurry, you could prepare these using **gasp** instant Pudding!
