Coconut Cream Cheese Pie

No Bake Coconut Cream Cheese Pie

Last week was Thanksgiving and I was contemplating what kind of pie to make. My hubby requested coconut cream pie, which I’m not a HUGE fan of. I on the other hand was craving cheesecake. Cheesecake, however, didn’t seem festive enough for Thanksgiving. So I decided to combine the two into a coconut cream cheese pie to establish the best of both worlds!

This pie was a total home run! Not only is it rich, creamy and mouthwatering but it’s also super easy to make since I cheat a bit and use a store bought crust (the hardest part about making pies) and I also use coconut cream pudding mix as well.

I like the fact that this coconut cream cheese pie is no bake as well. Usually when I make pies, everything looks good until I bake it. I usually over or under cook it or the filling oozes out everywhere and the whole thing just falls apart. With no bake pies, you have a little more control of what the end product is going to be.

The other thing I love about this pie is there’s no egg in it. Whether there’s egg in the crust or the filling, it can sometimes have that raw “eggy” taste that makes me want to gag most of the time. No egg also allows you to refrigerate it longer and it will still taste fresh.

If you are an over achiever (just kidding), you can make your own graham cracker pie crust for more of a made-from-scratch approach. I also highly recommend not skipping out on the toasted coconut topping. it adds a nice crunch and pop of sweetness. This recipes calls for more toasted coconut than you will likely need so feel free to pack the rest in a ziplock baggy to use on top of cereal, oats, or ice cream…YUM!

Ingredients

Directions for the Coconut Cream Cheese Pie

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the coconut cream pudding and the half and half with a whisk until smooth and creamy; let it sit for a minute or two to thicken.
  2. Scoop 1 1/2 cups of the mixture into the bottom of the pie crust (this is the first layer).

Coconut Cream Cheese Pie

  1. In a separate bowl, cream together the sugar and cream cheese with a hand held mixer.
  2. Fold in the cool whip with a spatula until everything is well combined.
  3. Add half of the sugar/cream cheese/cool whip mixture to the remaining coconut cream pudding/half and half mixture and mix together until well combined; spread evenly over the first layer of the pie (this is the second layer).
  4. Spread the remaining sugar/cream cheese/cool whip mixture on top of the second layer (this is the third layer).
  5. Cover with a lid a refrigerate for 8-10 hours (or over night).

Directions for the Toasted Coconut Topping

  1. When ready to serve the pie, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a sheet pan with a piece of parchment paper.
  3. Evenly spread the shredded coconut out on the pan.

How to Make Toasted Coconut

  1. Bake for about 8-10 minutes (make sure you mix the coconut around every two minutes so that it bakes evenly).
  2. Sprinkle the top of the pie with the toasted coconut and serve!

Succotash Casserole with French Green Beans and Corn

This savory succotash casserole is the perfect dish for the holidays. I make it every year for Thanksgiving and is always a big hit with everyone.

This recipe (like many of our traditional Thanksgiving recipes) is courtesy of my late Grandma Sharon. She was the BEST cook and miss her all the time. I love carrying on her legacy by making her delicious recipes that our family and friends have always enjoyed so much.

This low carb cheesy succotash casserole will fool you into thinking your eating a lot of carbs since it’s so cheesy, savory, and hearty…but your not! It’s also extremely easy to make. The hardest part about the whole thing is probably chopping a few vegetables. Other than that it’s really just a matter of throwing everything together in one big saucepan.

I incorporate my own twist by adding a crushed ritz cracker and butter topping but you can leave that off if you prefer the lower carb version.

Ingredients

Succotash recipe

  • 1 large package of frozen corn
  • 1 large package of frozen french cut green beans
  • 3/4 c. celery – diced
  • 3/4 c. green bell pepper – diced
  • 3/4 c. mayonnaise
  • 3/4 c. white or yellow onion – diced
  • 1 c. Velveeta cheese
  • 2 c. Ritz crackers – crushed
  • 1/3 c. melted butter
  • Salt and Pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large saucepan, boil the green beans for 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add the corn; continue boiling for an additional 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Drain and return to the saucepan for later; season with salt and pepper.
  5. Dice up the celery, bell pepper, and onion.
  6. Cut the Velveeta cheese into small chunks; add to the corn and green beans to melt down.Succotash casserole
  7. Add the mayo, celery, bell pepper, and onions to the corn, green beans and cheese.
  8. Generously season with salt and pepper
  9. Toss all the ingredients together thoroughly until the cheese is melted (be gentle so the corn doesn’t get mushy).
  10. Spread the mixture evenly into a 9X13 inch pan.
  11. In a large ziplock bag, finely crush the Ritz crackers.
  12. Add the melted butter to the crushed crackers and mix together thoroughly using your hands.
  13. Sprinkle the casserole with an even layer of the cracker mixture.
  14. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  15. Remove aluminum foil and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes until golden brown and bubbly.Succotash casserole
