Coffee Sugar Cream Pie

I love both traditional desserts and trendy ones. Give me a slice of vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream and I’m a happy camper. The same goes for a blondie loaded with cookie butter. They each have unique things that make them special.

What I love perhaps more than either is a dessert that combines tradition and trend. Like this Coffee Sugar Cream Pie. Hoosier Cream Pie is a very traditional Midwest dessert that puts a creamy vanilla custard in a traditional pie crust. I changed things up by using a graham cracker crust and International Delight Iced Coffee.

Graham Cracker Crusts

Making the Filling

Let’s start with the International Delight Iced Coffee. I’ve had a thing for Iced Coffee since I was about ten. No matter the time of year, I’d head to my favorite coffee shop and pick up and iced this or that to enjoy. It’s a habit I’ve gotten away from recently because I rarely go to coffee shops. My addiction had been reignited with one taste of this store bought treat.

It is ready and waiting in the refrigerator whenever my craving strikes, and it is better than those coffee shop drinks. That’s right. I said it. BETTER. Smooth and creamy, the flavor is intoxicating and not too coffee-y, if you know what I mean.

Shopping at Walmart

Plus, it is now available in its new location in the refrigerated tea/juice section at Walmart, so it’s easy to pick up on my weekly trip there. You should put it on your list too.

But like the rest of my favorite products, I wanted to bake with it. I am so glad I did. The creaminess of the International Delight is accentuated by more cream and some vanilla bean paste. Some sugar makes it a dessert and flour helps to set the pie. The graham cracker crust works so well too because it’s like dunking a graham cracker into coffee. Don’t pretend like you’ve never done that before.

Though a whole pie would definitely work, I made mini pies because I love single serving treats and they would be so cute to have at a party.

Be sure to pick up International Delight Iced Coffee on your next trip to Walmart so that you can make these pies and other fun recipes too!

  1. I live smack dab in the middle of Hoosier country and have never made nor eaten a cream pie! I’d love to sample one of your minis—I love your coffee twist!

  2. What a cute little treat! I love individual desserts – it’s easier to keep from overindulging!

  3. I don’t drink coffee too often anymore but I love the smell/flavor so these desserts look perfect! Also, coffee tends to remind me of cooler weather so these are perfect for fall 🙂

  4. I love cream pies and these sounds outstanding! I’ll definitely have to give these a try.

  5. I’m a big fan of mini pies too — something so fun about eating an entire pie by yourself. 🙂 Anyway, love the flavor combo in your pie — so creative. Thanks!
