Banana Cream Pie


Banana cream pie is a classic. One of the comfort foods you remember from your childhood. Martha Stewart had this recipe we decided to try. The pie crust is The Perfect Pie Crust.
I have added this recipe to Sweet As Sugar Cookies Blog, Sweets for a Saturday #8.

Banana Cream Pie

Ingredients:

Follow the pie crust recipe and blind bake shell.

Filling ingredients:

1 package vanilla pudding mix
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/4 cups whipped cream
1/3 cup toasted coconut, plus more for garnish
3 small or 2 large bananas, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds

Directions:

Make the filling:
In a medium saucepan, whisk together pudding mix and milk.
Place over medium heat and cook, stirring, until mixture thickens and comes to a boil.
Remove from heat and transfer to a medium bowl.
Cover with plastic wrap, pressing down on the surface to prevent a skin from forming.
Transfer to refrigerator and let chill.

Fold 1/4 cup whipped cream, coconut and bananas into pudding.
Pour filling into cooled pie crust, spreading evenly with a spatula.
Add remaining 1 cup whipped cream over the top of the pie.
Sprinkle with remaining toasted coconut.
Keep pie refrigerated until ready to serve; pie is best served the day it is made.

Does that pie ever look so creamy and delicious! One of my favourite pies ever is Martha Stewart's coconut cream tart so I have no doubt this is amazing too. I love that there's coconut in this pie also. Yum!

Isn't this the way that all bananas were meant to be eaten? Yum. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd be delighted if you'd stop by and link your pie up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/03/sweets-for-saturday-8.html
