Dahlia Bakery Coconut Cream Pie


I’m chocolate obsessed.  Dark chocolate specifically.  There is always a bar in my refrigerator…a bar in my freezer…and I have a chocolate stash with all the best chocolates I’m hoarding (uhm…saving) for that “special moment”.  When I look at dessert menus, chocolate always wins.  If there is no chocolate option, I pass.  With two exceptions…Peach pie and coconut cream pie!  Tom Douglas’ Dahlia Bakery Coconut Cream Pie to be exact!

My pie love brings back memories of my grandmother’s homemade treats she would bring over on Sunday’s when I was a kid.  Always baked with love.  Always lovely tasting.

A few days ago a friend sent me a text that she had a present for me.  I LOVE presents!

Especially THIS present…

Dahlia Bakery Pie Box

A little bitty box from Tom Douglas’ Dahlia Bakery.

It’s not a “little blue box” from Tiffany’s (although I dressed its photo shoot with a little turquoise glow)…

It’s possibly better.

Whatever could be inside this adorable little box?

Seriously…how cute is this box??  It could have been empty and I’d probably still been excited about it.

GET OUT!!!!!!

A little bitty box with a little bitty Tom Douglas Dahlia Bakery coconut cream pie??? Oh “dah”ling…If my friend had been a guy I’d have immediately screamed, “I do!!!”

While every fiber of me wanted to shove that little circle of coconut cream pie love in my mouth, I somewhere found some restraint because that box and that little bitty pie was too beautifully inspiring not to have a food paparazzi date with my Macro Lens.




Seriously, how beautiful is this dreamy little pie?

WOW!  Did it work the camera or WHAT?  I think it was destined to be a model.

Oh, no, it was destined to be special, inspiring…and eaten!

It lived a GOOD and successful life and WORKED my taste buds to perfection!

Thanks to my friend for the present and to Dahlia Bakery for the bite sized deliciousness (that I made into 4 bites so it would last longer)!

The foodie alternative to Tiffany’s “little blue box”!

Seattle sweet tooth satisfied by Dahlia Bakery.

Always baked with love.  Always lovely tasting.
