Super Simple Boston Cream Pie Recipe

237 Flares 237 Flares ×

Listen, my friends. My kids are on vacation this week.  ALL week.  All three are home, wanting to have things to do, and-well, just expect maybe a lot of recipes this week.  Easy, kid friendly ones.  Maybe crafts.  It’s for my sanity. I’ve not had them all home together in a long time!  Today’s recipe is a super simple Boston Cream Pie recipe.  Had to go with this, it’s REALLY easy and the perfect recipe for the kids to assist with.

But my favorite part? No baking. None. Zip.  It needs time to chill in the fridge.  At least an hour.  Don’t cheat.  Trust me. Give it the full hour+ and you’ll be glad you did. The cake, the filling and then the top. AND, my 8 year old did 99% of this herself!!  She was SO proud.

Kraft sent us a basket of ingredients to help inspire some fun recipes this week.  (Great timing, thank you Kraft!) and gave us a list of recipes we might like to try.  That’s where this Boston Cream Pie Recipe comes from – from Kraft.  Just wait till you see how easy it is!
