These pocket sized Coconut Cream Jar Pies from Handheld Pies are not exactly like the slice you'd find at your local diner, and the fact that it comes in a jar is only the beginning.
Sarah Billingsley and Rachel Wharton have crafted a take on classic coconut cream that feels updated and even a little elegant. Beginning with a flaky butter crust with just the right amount of salt, the custard that's spooned into the shells is intensely coconutty with chewy-tender shreds of unsweetened coconut and coconut milk and finished with a dollop of barely sweet whipped cream and a sprinkle of toasted coconut. Not exactly like the one you're going to find in your local diner's dessert case, but chances are they're not serving pies in jars either.
