Individual Boston Cream Pies Recipe




Boston cream pie consists of two vanilla or sponge cake layers filled with custard and topped with a chocolate frosting or glaze. These individual Boston cream pies are a cross between a whoopie pie and a mini Boston cream pie. The base of this dessert is a cake like cookie instead of a cake. The filling is a vanilla cream center made with pudding and whipped topping. A chocolate glaze finishes these delicious desserts.
