about our dinner club

In case you’re not familiar, I am part of a monthly virtual dinner club. There are 5 other bloggers, plus myself, and we create a themed tablescape every month along with a menu to go with our theme.

I have really loved creating these tablescapes and recipes and sharing them with you. If you have been around a while, I hope you’re enjoying them too!

This month, the theme is “Cozy Winter”. If you missed my tablescape on Thursday, you can see that here.

Don’t these all sound yummy???

The best part about my recipe is…..

Yep, you read that right. 8-10 minutes in the microwave, and that’s it. And you can’t believe how yummy it is!!

no bake crust for parfaits

1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup sugar

4 tablespoons butter

filling for parfaits

1 cup sugar

2 cups milk

1/3 cup flour

3 egg yolks

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons butter

3/4 cup coconut flakes

1 pint whipping cream

directions for coconut pie mini parfaits

Mix sugar and flour together, then add milk and mix with wire whisk.

Add egg yolks, and beat well.

Microwave 5 minutes on high, then stir.

Microwave for another 3-5 minutes depending on your microwave. You want the consistency of pudding.

Stir, then add 2 tablespoons butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla and 3/4 cup coconut flakes.

Let cool before adding to your parfait glasses.

assembling the mini parfaits

For my parfaits, I used vintage juice glasses. I picked these up at a thrift shop recently for .25 cents each.

They were the perfect size for a mini parfait.

First, you want to mix up your crust, and press into the bottom of each glass.

I made my crust about an inch thick and pressed it in with a wooden tart tamper.

After your filling has cooled, you want to add a layer of filling on top of the graham cracker crust.

Next add a layer of whipping cream. I used a pint of whipping cream and added about a 1/2 cup of sugar, then mixed in my stand mixer until firm.

Add another layer of filling, then top with a layer of whipped cream.

embellishing the top of my coconut pie mini parfaits

I decided to decorate the top of my parfaits with toasted coconut.

I found a super easy method for toasting coconut. All you do is put a layer of coconut flakes on a microwavable plate.

Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each so it doesn’t burn. The coconut will begin to toast.

It took about 5 minutes total, but of course, this will depend on your microwave.

And that’t it! Sprinkle a little on top of your super cute coconut pie mini parfaits, and serve!!
