Let’s be actual right here. Boston creme pie is completely extra like a cake than a pie. Whereas its title may be deceptive, the dessert is fairly simple in relation to its stage of decadence. Sponge cake, vanilla custard and chocolate ganache? That’s fairly a mouthful.

I bought Boston creme pie on my mind when Nellie’s Free Vary Eggs reached out to collaborate in honor of the model being named the official egg of the Boston Crimson Sox. How cool is that?! As a New Englander, I’ve nothing however respect for the Sox. The identical goes for Nellie’s, whose farms and eggs are licensed humane. The very best treats for sport day are transportable, so I reworked Boston creme pie into very transportable (and poppable!) cookie cups. Utilizing Nellie’s eggs in each the cookie and filling PLUS making them gluten, grain and optionally dairy-free? I’d name {that a} dwelling run for positive.

These cups require three totally different layers, so to maintain the steps extra manageable I used a shortcut for the cookie base. Easy Mills grain-free cake combine was the proper option to create “cookie” cups. I opted to make the filling from scratch to make it each extra flavorful and nutritious. My British husband loves all issues paying homage to vanilla custard, and he gave my model a giant thumbs up. Lastly, my secret to creating a chocolate ganache that holds its kind and doesn’t cease all down the perimeters of the cups? Just a little coconut oil does the trick!

I hope you take pleasure in these little guys as a lot as I appreciated creating them. A particular because of Nellie’s for sponsoring this submit.
