Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + chilling


2 servings

SINCE there are just the two of us in the household now, I need to "keep it small" in my cooking. This dessert helps me do just that. Using the vanilla wafers was my idea...they work perfectly in smaller portions. —Betty Kibbe Albuquerque, New Mexico


  • 16 vanilla wafers
  • 2 tablespoons raspberry preserves
  • 1/2 cup prepared vanilla pudding
  • 2 tablespoons sweetened shredded coconut, toasted
  • 1/3 cup prepared tapioca pudding


  1. Spread the flat side of 12 wafers with 1/2 teaspoon raspberry preserves each. Crumble remaining wafers and set aside.
  2. Place five wafers each around the edges of two individual 4- to 6-oz. dishes, preserves side facing in. Place one wafer in the bottom of each dish, preserves side up. Spoon vanilla pudding in the center; sprinkle with wafer crumbs and half of the coconut. Top with tapioca pudding and remaining coconut. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
