My husband was out of town this week. I was home with our two children for 3 1/2 days. Wow! I have so much respect for single moms. Being home alone with my kids was a lot harder than I expected it. The perk about my husband’s job is he is home with us, and we go to work with him. We support each other.
So since my husband was gone, my Princess and I decided to have a girl’s night. Ever since we had girl’s day in Iowa last year, my Princess loves doing girl’s night when we are home alone. This time we picked out a fun dessert we could make together. We also did a mask, watched a family movie, and painted our toenails!
Mini Strawberry Pie
- Mini Graham Cracker Pie Crust
- Can of Strawberry Pie Filling
- Whipped Cream Topping
So easy. My 5 year old did it all by herself. Fill the mini pie crust with strawberry pie filling and top with whipped cream. She loved it! You can also add a layer of sliced bananas on top of the strawberry filling for a Strawberry Banana Pie. Yummy!
Do you want to see the toenail polish she decided on?
Having a daughter can be so fun!
Yummy! These look like the perfect sweet treat for my little ones. And just their size!
That is what my 5 year old likes. Things that are her size. 🙂 Thanks for coming by Danielle.

This recipe looks super easy, going to try it with my little guy, thanks for sharing!
So easy, Jackie! Last night we made it again for my husband and added sliced bananas. It was yummy!
Such fun! I had a son but no daughters, but I take advantage of all the time I get to spend with my nieces. You’re right, girls are so much fun!

That pie looks so good! My 5 year old loves things her size, too, and we are always looking for ways to get her to try new foods. This will be a great way to try that!
During Strawberry season we like to make large pies like this. So yummy. And so easy for a 5 year old to help.

I love it! Yes, having a daughter can be so much fun and the fact it doesn’t take much to make them happy is awesome-just our time! Looks like you had a blast!

I seriously love anything mini sized. Those pies looks so yummy.
I always feel better about eating a mini dessert than a full sized one 🙂

Cherry pie, one of my favorites. This looks great. I only had boys but spoil my nieces. Your daughter is adorable.
Yes, this would work great with Cherry pie filling too. They also have blueberry pie filling that’d taste great!
So adorable, those toes!

(Girl’s Night In: Mini Strawberry Pie) Now I have to admit, this would be one of my husband’s favorite desserts to eat. He likes strawberry anything really. The short cake is his fave though. Will have to make for us sometime-
Those look delicious. Have you thought about making your own whipped cream? Its super easy, tastes really, really good, and only contains what you want it to. The last time I made it, I used local wildflower honey as the sweetener. The subtle floral flavor went well with whipped cream.
I’ve not made my own whipped cream, Tracee – but yes, I’d like to. Thank you for sharing how easy it is!
Blueberry season now! Blueberry pie is delicious too. mmmmmm
