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

Ingredients

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)

Directions

  • 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!
