Here’s a gorgeous pie that really looks like you fussed. It features a crunchy graham cracker crust with a touch of ginger, a lovely fresh strawberry layer and tasty banana cream topping. Julie Guntzel - Bemidji, Minnesota
When I read that Taste of Home was having a banana recipe contest, I knew instantly the recipe I should share. This delectable pie is from a recipe I found years ago, and everyone who tastes it enjoys its delicious old-fashioned flavor. —Rita Pribyl, Indianapolis, Indiana
These petite pies take very little time to prepare and it’s an impressive, delicious dessert. Since my husband’s work hours are erratic, we don’t eat at the same time every day, so I often have these chilling in the refrigerator several hours in advance of mealtime.
How to Thaw Cool-Whip Whipped Topping: The best way to thaw frozen COOL WHIP Topping is in its container in the refrigerator. Depending on the size of the tub you have, the thawing time varies. Recommended thawing times are: 8-oz. tub-4 hours; 12-oz. tub-5 hours; 16-oz. tub-6 hours. We DO NOT recommend thawing COOL WHIP Topping in the microwave.
I developed this recipe based on a popular pie served at an Atlanta restaurant. Everyone looks forward to this dessert at the annual Christmas party we host on our farm. Chocolate curls as a garnish are a nice contrast to the creamy white pie.
If you need a no-fuss dessert that will please kids but is elegant enough for a grown-up gathering, try this dessert. Marshmallows, banana and raspberries are stirred into the creamy treats for a fun dinner finale.—Barbara Nowakowski, North Tonawanda, New York
