Marshmallow Peeps Pie

23 Apr

I was cruising around Perez Hilton’s website today and I saw this recipe, just in time for Easter! Personally,  I am not a fan of Peeps (except for the homemade ones at Krause’s Candy in Saugerties, NY Mmmmmm) but I couldn’t pass up posting this fun and quirky recipe for Easter celebrations this Sunday. Peeps pie is a great dessert for anyone you know who just can’t get enough of those adorable, sugar covered chicks


10 marshmallow Peeps
1 egg
1/4  heavy cream (for pie filling)
2 Tablespoons flour
1 package of mini graham cracker crusts
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups heavy cream (to make topping)


  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
  • Place Peeps in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, until peeps fluff up.
  • When peeps are done, immediately remove from microwave and beat in egg.
  • Add flour and 1/4 cup of heavy cream to bowl.
  • Spoon mixture in mini crusts, but don’t over fill! Leave a small amount of crusts visible at the top
  • Place crusts on a baking sheet, bake for 18-20 minutes, until pie centers are set (no longer jiggly, as I say).
  • Remove pies from oven a let cool.
  • With remaining 1 1/4 cups cream, beat cream and sugar together to make whipped cream.
  • Decorate cooled pies with whipped cream and extra peeps.

I really hope someone tries this recipe and sends in pictures… unfortunately since it’s still Passover, I can’t have graham crackers :(  and my friends are not a fan of Peeps so I can’t make them eat this dessert. But I am super curious as to how it looks/tastes. What are your favorite Easter recipes?

Happy Easter everyone! Happy baking, and remember–it’s a cake walk!

    Ugh- peeps. I’m not bashing your post- I love it (and the pic even looks kind of cute), but the peeps themselves? Can’t we make something with those Reese’s PB Eggs? Oh man, we should.

      Mmmmm Reese’s Eggs. So good. I’ve never really liked Peeps either, but this recipe caught my eye so I thought it would be fun to share. I’ll keep an eye out for other recipes that use all that Easter candy that gets marked down 90% after the holiday :)
