Easy Easter Basket Pie with Marie Callender’s

Sponsored Post DisclosureEaster Pie with Marie Callender's

Whenever we get together for holiday meals with the extended family, it’s always a potluck type meal. Each family brings a dish or two and the combined efforts of everyone all adds up to one delicious and FUN holiday meal! Part of the fun of our get-togethers, is that no one really plans who will be bringing what. So sure, that means that sometimes two people will bring meatballs – but at least they are each different recipes!

One of my favorite parts of these family get-togethers are the desserts. There will always be different types – from the simple to the fancy. No matter what the desserts, the special touches that make them stand out are always appreciated.

This year I’m letting Marie Callender’s give me a hand to make a special Easter dessert without a lot of effort on my part. Marie Callender’s has nine different cream pies that are waiting in the freezers of retailers nationwide for us to add a special ending to our holiday meals.

Marie Callender's Cream Pie Easter

I let my hubby choose the pie this time and he selected the Chocolate Satin Pie. I’m glad I let him make the decision, because I couldn’t decide between this pie, the Turtle Pie and the Coconut Cream Pie. They all looked so good! For the candy, I just headed to the Easter aisle and grabbed some of our favorites. To create the handle of the easy Easter basket pie, I grabbed some wire-edged pastel colored ribbon.

Creating the pie was the fun part! The chocolate rabbit took his place in the center of the pie and then I played around arranging candies around the “basket”. For the handle, I just taped the edges of the ribbon underneath the pie plate. Easy peasy!

Now comes the hard part. Do I put this back in the freezer and bring it to my Aunt’s house on Easter like I had planned, or do we eat it for dinner tonight? I think I’ll go with eating it tonight. This was so quick to make that I can easily swing by the store to pick up another Marie Callender’s Cream Pie and create another one (or two) for Easter.

You can find out more about Marie Callender’s Pies on their web site and on Facebook.
