The other day, the kind folks at the Buttercup Grill and Bar sent me a coconut cream pie. It was devilishly delicious, and with its crisp buttery crust, smooth creamy filling, and luscious whipped cream topping, it was hard not to devour a second piece. I sent an email out to the office announcing the pie's arrival and within half an hour, the entire thing was gone! I was surprised; since the majority of people prefer fruit pies, I figured not that many would want a piece of cream pie. How do you feel about them?
Cream pies are one of my favorite types of desserts. Refreshingly cool, with a smooth filling, and pillows of whipped cream, they are absolutely delicious. This recipe takes the classic cream pie and turns it into a more portable bar. The best thing about these coconut cream bars is that no pastry dough is needed. The crust is a mixture of shortbread cookies and coconut, while the filling is a coconut custard, and the topping is sweet whipped cream. Doesn't it sound divine? Wait until you read the recipe!
