Technically, This Is a Recipe FAIL
A 4th of July Banana-Coconut Cream Pie was the goal, but after baking and whipping through mound after mound of bananas I found myself out of ingredients! So yeah, I won’t pretend these dainty little morsels are exactly Plan A, but they do seem to be disappearing rather quickly around here.
Oh, And Don’t Let Their Prim Appearance Fool You
They’re best enjoyed a tad melty. In fact, if by the time you polish off the last bite your fingers aren’t covered in tiny pink rivulets . . . well, you ate them wrong. Better go whip up another batch and start again.
Monday I’ll be sharing one of my fave holiday treats, but for now I want to know:
