Banana Cream Pie
A bit late, but finally have my post from Pi Day! Since Pi Day was also game day I knew I had to make something, and it had to be something awesome. Thankfully /r/52weeksofcooking pointed me in the right direction with their banana theme. I had never made/had a banana cream pie but figured it couldn’t be too hard – just a more solid version of banana pudding. I searched the internet for inspiration but most of them involved ingredients I didn’t have on hand, and since I was doing this last minute the day after an embryo transfer going to the store just wasn’t going to happen. So I decided to use a custard recipe I acquired many moons ago and just modify it as needed. For the crust I went with my standard push-in-pan using vanilla wafers. One day I’ll figure out how to roll a pie crust but until then push-in-pan it is!
Hope your sweet tooth is ready for this week as I’ll have another dessert recipe on Wednesday as part of #15Cheesecakes!
