I absolutely love Banana Cream Pie and it has to be the easiest pie to make. Start with your graham cracker crumbs, a little splenda and melted butter to make your crust. Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes until rich golden brown. Let cool completely.
While cooling, make your banana cream pudding. I will admit, i took the easy way out and followed the box recipe on Jello Banana Cream pudding. I figured I was making the crust from scratch, I need not make the pudding from scratch…and well, I was on a bit of a time schedule. I needed to get it in the fridge before having dinner with SkinnyM.
Once the crust shell is cooled completely, slice 2 bananas into 1/2 inch thick rounds and place on crust. Pour pudding mixture over pie and cover with plastic wrap (be sure to lay plastic wrap on the pudding, resting ON the pudding, not allowing air to hit to come between. the air with cause a film over the pudding) Serve with a few reserved pieces of banana on top.
