Chocolate Chip Banana Cream Pie

 Chocolate Chip Banana Cream Pie
This rich treat is a hit every time I serve it. The chilled filling, brimming with bananas, is refreshing, and the cookie crust provides a chocolaty crunch. Even a small slice will satisfy the biggest sweet tooth. —Taylor Carroll, Parkesburg, Pennsylvania
