I’m sure  you realize by now that it isn’t a coincidence for me to have a treat that coincides with a “national holiday”, right?

Yes, I’m crazy enough to know that today is “PI” day.  No, I did not forget the “E” at the end.  Although when I hear the word PI, the only thing I think of is crust, filling, and Cool Whip.

I most definitely do not think of math and school and numbers and and any other 3.14 things.   Nope, definitely just sugar on the brain.

So I remembered that today is national PI day, and of course I decided a week ago to bake a pie.  #yesijustlied

Did you believe that?  I hope not.  One thing I most definitely am NOT is on top of things.  You won’t find a perfectly clean and decorated house here.  I am usually in my pj’s until noon.  I hide from the mail lady because I am still in my pj’s and I usually haven’t washed my face yet.  Grossest mental picture I’m sure!   And most nights I suggest cereal for dinner because really it’s just easier than cooking.  (Good thing I married a guy who does like to cook)  Oh, and I just realized that I haven’t dusted my dresser in like 6 months.   Don’t believe the perfectly styled pictures of food that I share.  It’s definitely not how things look most days behind the scenes.  We are real here too.

So of course, I decided totally last minute to make a pie for today.  As in I made it yesterday morning, photographed it, ate one slice, and immediately found someone to take it away.

The other night when I knew I wanted to bake a pie, I was totally and completely undecided on what to make.  I  had a box of chocolate pudding and some Cool Whip, but just couldn’t decide what to do with it.  I know, I know.  This coming from the person with lists upon lists of things to bake and create.  For some reason the pie was not coming to me.  My hubby suggested asking on Facebook what the best pie everyone had ever had.  It was fun to read through all the delicious flavors, but the one that stood out to me was COCONUT!

I kind of puffy heart love coconut, but none of our kids got that gene.  So I enjoyed one piece and then found a coconut loving family to share it with.

Yes, I am crazy enough to bake one pie just so I can eat one slice.  It’s just what I do.  Most treats I make for my family to eat.  This happened to be a pie just for me…I would have shared with my husband.  But he is super freaky good about not cheating on his eating plan.  Why can’t I have that willpower?  I want to like veggies, but I like pie more! #sweettoothissues

Let’s talk about this delicious pie.

I know I told you it was no bake.  It’s technically almost no bake.  You will need to bake the pie shell and toast some coconut.  Although you could totally cheat and use a pre made crust and leave off the topping.  The rest of the layers mix up in no time at all.

The coconut layer is cream cheese, powdered sugar, and Cool Whip all creamed together.  Add in the coconut and spread it in the pie shell.   One layer done in less than 3 minutes.  Now whisk together some milk and a chocolate fudge pudding mix.  Let is set up in the refrigerator for about 3 minutes, then spoon that on top of the coconut cheesecake.  Last is a layer of fluffy Cool Whip and some toasted coconut.

I have had to start buying the big containers of Cool Whip because it mysteriously disappears from our fridge.  Now here’s the kicker…it’s the no sweets husband of mine.  Yup, his guilty secret is pilfering Cool Whip.  Of course he usually just eats from the frozen container.  Then I go to use it in a recipe and there is no Cool Whip in the freezer any more.

Seriously it takes about 10 minutes to have this pie ready.  As long as you don’t count baking the pie shell!

What are you waiting for?  I suggest eating 3.14 slices to celebrate since it is PI day.

    You CANNOT leave off that gorgeous topping of toasted coconut! It’s like the cherry on top! So beautiful and I completely forgot about “Pi” day. I was to busy with my St. Patty’s posts and sick kids to even think about it. But oh my goodness, this looks heavenly. I wish I had all of these ingredients right now to bake this up for myself and thankfully, no one else is really into coconut either so I could eat it all by myself and it would make these sick days go by a lot easier. I need to live closer to you so I can be the lucky person who gets these treats 😉

    I think it is wonderful that you made a pie with YOUR favorite flavors even if the rest of your family wouldn’t be thrilled! You deserve a treat too! And if that treat involves coconut and fudge….so much the better! I would have happily helped you eat this one. :)

    We are soul sisters! I always want to *want* veggies, but of course I’m always filling up on pie before dinner. :) I also love coconut, and think it’s great that you made this delicious coconut fudge pie just for yourself! (And for the lucky family that got to take the rest off your hands…)

    Oh how I wish there was more actual PIE at pi day. Then maybe I would’ve enjoyed it more. Since, really, how can you enjoy a MATH-related holiday? Ugh. We should just have a petition to rename it PIE day and everyone will be happier for it. 😀 I know I would. Though, a few slices of this pie might help…
