These Coconut and Almond Cream Pies are most delicious as a sweet treat or have one after dinner as a small dessert.

I usually bake three to four dozen of the Coconut cups ahead of time, keep them in a sealed container and use them whenever I need any sort of crust for a sweet treat.

The Almond Cream filling is by far one of the most delicious fillings I use to fill the cups, even though it requires an extra bit of baking.

Just about any no-bake filling is great to fill the cups with, as long as the filling is not too watery to start with, If needs be place your filling in the refrigerator to firm up a little before scooping into the Cups, otherwise it will make the Cups go soggy.

In the above pic you can see the Almond Cream perfectly. It is very smooth, but the Ground Almonds make a small difference in the texture.

The pies are still a melt-in-the-mouth sweet treat and you decide how sweet you like yours.

I like the filling just sweet enough without being overly sweet as the Coconut Cups are sweet already.

And the Pies get a bit of Chocolate drizzle over as well. In the end all the favors balance out wonderfully.

You can use either a cupcake pan or as I prefer, silicone cupcake cups – these are truly perfect for this kind of baking.

After the Cups are baked the cooling time are much less than when you use a pan.

And if you bake the Cups and straight after the filling, your oven would not need to be switched on twice, or kept switched on whilst you are waiting for the Cups to cool.

The silicone cupcake cups also make it easier to remove them by simply peeling away the silicone. I also make all my chocolate cups this way.
