It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Mindy Kaling around here. But that doesn’t mean we have to agree with everything she tweets… like when she said, “If you like a pie that is a ‘blank cream pie,’ you are trash.” Would she really think we were trash if we ate cream pie?! Guess that’s up for discussion, because we certainly wouldn’t. Check out these 15 [blank ;)] cream pie recipes that we sure hope Mindy Kaling would approve of.

1. Cookies and Cream Chocolate Pudding Pie: Um, can you say yum? Oreos, pudding and caramel? Oh, we’re so diving into this one. (via This Gal Cooks)

2. Raspberry Cream Pie: Next time you’re stuck on what to bring to the office potluck, we think this dessert would be a perfect option. Because who doesn’t love raspberry filling, err topping? (via Life in the Lofthouse)

3. Banana Cream Pie: This pie might scream summer, but we think it’s totally acceptable to dig into this classic all season long. (via A Spicy Perspective)

4. Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie: What’s better than a classic pumpkin pie? Cream cheese pumpkin pie. Complete this dessert by garnishing it with cinnamon and chopped pecans. (via Love of Family and Home)


5. Vanilla Cream Pie (Gluten-Free): If you’re a fan of vanilla bean ice cream, then this pie is a must-try. Make this sweet treat by using a GF version of your basic cream pie recipe and adding vanilla for a little va va voom. (via Serious Eats)

6. Samoa Coconut Cream Pie: We didn’t think it could get better than our favorite Girl Scout cookies, but this cream pie proved us wrong. Whip up a coconut custard and top it off with whipped cream, toasted coconut flakes and caramel. (via Sift and Whisk)

7. Creamsicle Pie: Mmmm! This takes our favorite summer treat and turns it into a delicious (and photogenic) cream pie. Add orange rind garnishes to finish off the look. (via Serious Eats)

8. Peanut Butter + Chocolate Cream Pie: A peanut butter cream pie topped off with chocolate whipped cream – how could Mindy Kaling hate this? (via Evil Shenanigans)


9. Gluten-Free Coconut Cream Pie: Okay, everything in mini form just makes it 10 times cuter. And the wooden spoons? We can’t even. (via Baking a Moment)

10. Toasted Marshmallow Topped Cream Pie: So, yeah, this is basically the s’mores version of a cream pie, which means it just went to the top of our to-make list. (via Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Body)


11. Pumpkin Cream Pie With Candied Walnuts: A pumpkin cream pie is the perfect addition to your dessert table this season. Use candied walnuts to add to this already yummy pie. (via A Spicy Perspective)

12. World’s Best Coconut Cream Pie: There are a million and one coconut cream pie recipes out there, but this one claims to be the world’s best. We may just have to try it out. (via Today’s Mama)

13. Orange Cream Pie: Fresh zest gives this pie that extra oomph it needs. And guess what? You can make it with just 5 ingredients. Yep, FIVE. (via The First Year)

14. Chocolate Cream Pie: Aside from banana cream pie, chocolate cream pie is a staple. Take yours to the next level with chocolate shavings for extra taste and an *extra* wow factor. (via The Hungry Mouse)

Strawberry cream pie 5

15. Strawberry Cream Pie: Everything’s better with a touch of pink and that doesn’t stop at cream pie. Whip up this strawberry cream pie and serve on a gilded platter, because why not? (via The Goldilocks Kitchen)
