Ingredients for an easy lemony bird's nest dessert for Easter -- lemon pie, coconut flakes, Peeps -

  • Pre-Baked Lemon Meringue Pie  (I used Mrs. Callender’s pie from the freezer section.)
  • Easter Bird Peeps  Yellow Peeps are my favorite, but use whatever you wish.
  • Sweetened Coconut Flakes
  • Food Coloring (I used green.)
  • Zipper Sandwich Bag



Place a cup of Sweetened Coconut Flakes in a zippered sandwich bag.

Coconut flakes and food coloring -

Add a few drops of food coloring, zip the baggie shut, and start mixing the coconut flakes with the food coloring until the color is evenly distributed through the coconut.

If you like, you can make multiple bags and colors or a larger bag.  Start with a few drops of food coloring.  If you want a deeper color, add more.  Just know that you can’t take the color away, but you can always add color.  That’s all there is to it.

Keep the baggie zipped shut until serving time.



There are two ways that you can serve up your easy lemony bird’s nest dessert.

One way is to cut your pie into slices and serve it on dessert plates, make a bird’s nest on top of the with green coconut flakes and then top with an Easter Peep.
