5 Ingredient Mini Coconut Banana Cream Pies & Salem Baking Co Giveaway!

5 Ingredient Mini Coconut Cream Pies

These 5 Ingredient Mini Coconut Banana Cream Pies are SO SO SO YUMMY, only have 5 Ingredients (that’s right, 1,2,3,4,5-perfect for this week’s Five Ingredient Friday) and are made with delicious Toasted Coconut Moravian Cookies from the Salem Baking Company!

Dating back to 1766, the people of Moravia came to the colonies of North America and settled in North Carolina and brought with them a recipe for very thin, rolled out spice cookies with exotic flavors.

  • Fun fact of the day #1- Moravian Spice cookies have a reputation for being the ‘World’s Thinnest Cookie.’
  • Fun fact of the day #2- I first had Moravian Cookies when I lived in none other than the state of North Carolina, and have been craving them ever since moving, enter me doing a little happy dance when I saw that Salem Baking Company ships their product and has expanded their product line…a lot…from 4 years ago when I lived in NC!
  • Fun fact of the day #3-Since 1930 the Salem Baking Company has been making and carrying on the tradition of Moravian Cookies
  • Fun fact of the day #4- Salem Baking company is awesome (see below for the giveaway to try their AMAZING products)
  • Fun fact of the day #5- When I was working on the recipe for these Mini Coconut Banana Cream Pies I had my husband taste test them, his response was ‘it’s ridiculous how good these are’ (reason 100 billion why I love that man!)

Ok, so to make these Coconut Banana Cream Pies, you start by making the little pie crusts, then, while those are cooling you make the filling, then when the pie crusts are done cooling, you fill them with filling and viola, you’re done. Easy peasy!

Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 3.5-4 Oz Toasted Coconut Moravian Cookies (a sleeve and half of cookies)
Instructions
  1. Start by making the crusts. In a food processor put cookies and butter, pulsate until a thick crumbly consistency. If it's not coming together enough, feel free to add 1 teaspoon of water and pulsate to help combine.
  2. Grease a mini muffin pan liberally. Press crumb mixture into muffin pan and form with fingers into the little pie crusts. Once 12 mini pie crusts are formed, put pan in the refrigerator to set for 15 min.
  3. Preheat oven to 350. Remove from fridge and bake for 10 minutes. When you remove the pie crusts from the oven, you'll have to press the edges down with the back of a spoon. To avoid this step you could use mini pie weights (I just didn't happen to have any and don't mind pressing the pie into shapes, you can also leave as is for a puffier crust.)
  4. Allow for crusts to completely cool, as soon as they're done cooling remove (carefully!) from pan.
  5. While cooling, make the filling. In a bowl with either a hand mixer or stand mixer start by beating the banana until it becomes paste like. Then add the heavy cream and sugar and whip until soft peaks form (5 minutes).
  6. Fill pie crusts with a heaping tablespoon of filling, garnish with a little piece of cookie and enjoy!
Notes
Makes 12 mini pies, doesn't serve 12 because you'll want to eat more than 1 :)

      Oh, and the reason why is because I just love shortbread cookies, they are a favorite of mine. Five and half months preggo can count as a reason too, I believe?

    I just tried their moravian cookies for the first time this year (swag from Food Blog South) and both Chris and I are now addicted. I only wish they sold more varieties at my local grocery store (Publix).

      Moravian cookies are just sooo yummy, I was snacking on them today as a matter of fact (more facts of the day lol)! Eating moravian cookies always reminds me of when I lived in NC, there, the grocery stores had selection! Hope the grocery stores near you start carrying more varieties – they should because the products are all so delicious-especially the chocolate coated ones…have you ever tried those?

    Hi Phi, would love to try the Moravian spice cooks to be able to make this recipe, they are so adorable. Amazing there is only 5 ingredients noted.

      When I was done making the recipe I looked down and realized I had only used 5 Ingredients, I couldn’t believe it, I had to check everything twice lol! They were so yummy and simple to make, thanks for commenting and entering Cheri!

  3. says

    OH my goodness! I have heard amazing things about these cookies already and now your post sealed the deal. I so want to try them (and your gorgeous mini coconut pies too!)

      I totally have a sweet tooth as well ;) and the meyer lemon ones are delish-they are so summary tasting, and since they’re so thin, one can have a few!

    I would love to try the cheese straws as salty cheese tasting snacks are one of my favorites at work.

  6. says

    I can’t enter but Moravia?! What the heck. Definitely wasn’t expecting that! Love this post. :) I’ve only been to Prague in the Czech Republic but after spending the last 30 minutes reading about Moravia, I want to visit that region, too!

    And these little pies are so cute and yummy looking!

  7. Belinda says

    Ok, I had to “bite,” haha! I must try the chocolate dipped caramel & sea salt cookies as well as the toasted coconut. Decisions, decisions….I’ll take either! Thanks.

    I loved the chicken with cheese biscuit crumbs, would love to make it soon if one can find the biscuits.
