Updated: Jul 15

"A flaky pie crust is filled with layers of sliced bananas, velvety vanilla custard, and crowned with whipped topping!"



Banana Cream Pie

Servings – 15 Prep Time – 10 Minutes Chill Time – 4 Hours

Ingredients:


  • 1 9 inch flakey pie crust baked and cooled

  • 3 bananas, use 1 sliced for decorating

  • 2 cups cold whole milk

  • 1 3.5 oz package of instant vanilla pudding mix, you can also use french vanilla

  • 1 3.5 oz package of instant banana pudding mix, you can use 2 vanilla if you can't find banana pudding in your area

  • 2 cups frozen whipped topping thawed and divided


Directions:

For the Pastry


If making a pastry crust, preheat the oven to 425°F.


Roll the pie crust into a 12-inch circle. Line a 9-inch pie plate wiht the pastry and fold the edges under. Crimp as desired. Poke the bottom of the crust with a fork. This prevents the crust from bubbling during baking and lets the steam release from underneath.


Cut an 11-inch circle of parchment paper and gently place in the pie crust and fill it with dried beans or pie weights.


Bake crust for 15 minutes, remove the parchment and beans/weights and then bake for an additional 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Cool completely.


For the Filling


Slice the bananas and arrange around and over cooled pie crust.


In a medium bowl, whisk the pudding mixes and cold milk until smooth. Let rest for 3 minutes to thicken. Fold in 1 cup of whipped topping.


Spread the pudding mixture over the bananas. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.


Top with remaining whipped topping and decorate with banana slices and caramel or chocolate shavings if desired.


Notes:


For a No Bake Graham Crust, combine 6 tablespoons melted butter, 1 ½ cups graham crumbs, and ¼ cup granulated sugar. Press into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Chill for at least 15 minutes before filling.

"Banana cream pie is a staple in my kitchen along with a classic apple pie. Banana cream pie can certainly be made from scratch with eggs (either just yolks or whole eggs); however, I love this version because it’s so easy and has a nice thick texture."
