TWD: Banana Cream Pie

Banana Cream Pie. Dorie's Banana Cream Pie. A-MAZ-ING!!!! I am seriously in love with this week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe.

To be perfectly honest, I can't recall if I've ever had banana cream pie before. I'm sure I have, but I just don't remember. But this pie... HEAVEN!


Let's start with Dorie's delicious pie crust. Add on top of that a decadent pastry cream made with brown sugar and a hint of spice from the cinnamon and nutmeg. I was eating this cream with a spoon. Plop down some sliced bananas, repeat the layers, and top it off with tangy whipped cream. To. Die. For.


Luckily for my waist, I cut the recipe in half and made 3 mini pies using shallow ramekins. Myself and one friend were the only two who were going to eat the pie and, given it's shelf life, minis seemed to be the way to go.


Thank you oh so much to Amy of Sing for your Supper for choosing this pie which will be made again and again in my house. Check out her blog for the recipe and the blogroll for some delicious looking pie!
