TWD: Banana Cream Pie


This week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection is Banana Cream Pie. I love banana cream pie, but I've never made it myself. What a great opportunity to try! Dorie's recipe is a little different from the ordinary. Hers includes a custard with brown sugar which was absolutely tasty. And it's topped off with a sweet whipped cream that includes a touch of sour cream. The recipe made so much whipped cream, I could barely fit it all on the pie. After taking a few slices, all of the excess started to slide off into the pan. It was delicious though!

It was quite easy to make too, though I am confessing that I didn't make the pie crust from scratch. I didn't have the energy to put in that much work (nor the energy to take any decent photos - like you couldn't tell), so I settled for store-bought crust, which actually tasted quite good.

My hubby loved the pie too. The next morning he had a slice for breakfast before I woke up. He didn't confess to it until later in the day, and I thought it was quite funny!


If you'd like to make this delicious pie yourself, you can check out Amy's blog, Sing For Your Supper. Thanks for the great choice, Amy!

Nothing beats pie cor breakfast! I love it. I am a big fan of using store bought crusts. When I feel like it, I will make one. When I don't, I Pillsbury it! Ha. Nice job.
