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.
