I’ve never made a banana cream pie before, so I was excited to try this. I grew up eating banana pudding all the time, so I was pretty sure I would like this. This week was even easier because I already had one of Dorie’s pie crusts on hand from the last time we made a pie for TWD. It might come in handy for you to know that pie crusts do last for a while in the freezer, because I made the crust back in November. When I was making the crust for the Thanksgiving pie, I read and used the directions for a double crusted pie and didn’t realize until I was finished. But, it saved me time this week, so it was a good thing 🙂
This is such a homely looking pie, but it sure was good. The custard was absolutely amazing. I could just eat the custard straight. Making the custard kind of reminded me of Christmas because of the spices used. It smelled so good and filled the kitchen. With the layers of custard and bananas, and the delicious whipped cream topping, it’s hard not to love this dessert. I served it to some of our friends one night and it was pretty much devoured on the spot. You can visit Amy’s blog for the recipe, and visit the Tuesdays with Dorie blog to see everyone else’s pies!
