Make the Filling!

Add the broth and cream into a pot at medium heat. I sliced the carrots in rounds and thinly sliced the potato as I would to make scalloped potatoes. You can choose to chop them into smaller chunks. But, we prefer a chunkier filling.

Add salt and pepper to your liking and then add your carrots and potatoes to the filling first. This is so that they boil to perfection before you add the peas that have less cooking time.


Ham It Up!

Once our potatoes and carrots are tender, you can add the peas and the ham to the mixture. I chose Honey Glazed Cooked Ham and used about 1/2 cup when sliced. It’s up to you how much ham you like in your pie of course!


Fill “Er Up!

Your pie filling should be ready to go after you’ve simmered the mixture at low heat with the peas and ham, make sure to stir frequently so that it doesn’t burn. After the mixture simmers, take the pot off the heat and wait until almost cooled.


Make It Gooey!

Add a cup of your favorite cheese, I used Colby Jack because it is Hubby’s favorite. But, you can use whatever cheese you like. This makes for a great melty surprise underneath the pie crust and it is so delicious. One of my favorite parts as it tastes divine with the Tenderflake crust.


Top It and Prepare for the Oven!

Place the second Tenderflake pie crust right on top of the pie as to cover it. Pinch the edges to make sure that your filling stays inside where it’s supposed to! Make five vents in your pie and poke a hole in the center. This is to ensure that the steam can escape and your pot pie doesn’t swell or burst!

I used a knife to make the slits and a straw to poke the center. Bake for about 30 mins or until golden brown and ENJOY!

Time for Dessert!


Nothing Like a Sweet Ending!

I absolutely love these tarts, they don’t last very long in our house and we always share with my parents because my dad especially loves them. Want to know who’s recipe makes these delicious Coconut Cream Fruit Tarts?

My Hubby’s!


You Will Need:
  • 12 Tenderflake Tart Shells
  • 1/2 cup of sweetened coconut
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 3 cups of cream
  • 1 tsp. of pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of Stevia
  • Strawberries and Blueberries to garnish
  • Baking sheet
  • Pot

Take the 1/2 cup of sweetened coconut and spread it on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees until golden brown. Follow the instructions on the Tenderflake box to pre-bake your tarts. Make sure to stir often so that it doesn’t burn. Mix your cream, egss, vanilla and stevia in a pot and bring to a boil over low heat. Once the mixture is boiled, add your 1/2 cup of toasted coconut.

Let cool for 5 minutes.


Once cooled, spoon in the mixture into the Tenderflake tart shells. Put into the fridge so that mixture sets. The custard should be firm and not runny, once it is firm, you are ready to top it with the blueberries and strawberries.
