Banana Coconut Pie
Recipe Development by Kate Wood

Summer dessert is a dish best served cold. Enter our rich collection of chilled sweets, packed with all of the fruit, custard, and, yes, ice cream you could ever want.  From a mixed berry icebox pie to mix-and-match ice cream sandwiches, these are the frosty treats to make your summer days a little bit cooler and a whole lot sweeter. 

  1. Banana Coconut Cream Pie 
    This Banana Coconut Cream Pie is perfect for the home baker who doesn’t want to choose between two Southern favorites. Top this pie from blogger Kate Wood with a cloud of whipped cream and fresh banana slices, and a sprinkle of toasted coconut is great here as well. Find more recipes for icebox pies from Kate Wood in our 2018 May/June Issue, here

2. Strawberries and Cream Icebox Cake 

With fresh strawberries nestled amongst pillows of fluffy frosting, this fruity treat is as beautiful to serve as it is easy to make. Mix it up by replacing the strawberries with your favorite berry.

3. Berries and Cream Pie 

In this Berries and Cream Pie by blogger, Kate Wood, there is a tangy buttermilk filling, buttery pecan-laced crust, and sweet berry topping. This pie represents everything we’ve come to know and love about quintessentially Southern desserts. Berries fit perfectly with this pie, but peaches, plums, and dark cherries would be a great addition.

4. Mix-and-Match Ice Cream Sandwiches 

When temperatures spike, nothing beats the heat like an Ice Cream Sandwich. Build your own with these mix-and-match cookies and creams, and you’ll be the neighborhood hero this Summer. 

5. Frozen Key Lime White Chocolate Mousse Cake 

This cake has the best of both worlds. The tart pop of Key lime zest is subdued by the smooth creaminess of white chocolate in this creamy mousse cake.

6. Key Lime Pie 

Our take on the beloved original Key Lime Pie features a salty-sweet crust and intense lime flavor thanks to a cup of juice from this pie’s tiny namesake citrus. For more fabulous pies get a copy of our Artisan Pies & Tarts Special Issue here
