Reviews for Old-Fashioned Banana Cream Pie
"Followed the recipe and the taste was as good as the ingredient. The pie did not stand up and was soupie. Not something I would ever serve to guest. What went wrong?"
"Whipped topping? Old fashioned? That is junk food, garbage. No thanks. That's it for this subscription."
"This is very good and easy to make, but I also use banana pudding in place of the vanilla. Gives it a more banana flavor. And I use the extra creamy whipped topping."
"Very good and very easy to make! I really liked this one!"
"nothing like real old fashioned banana cream pie... real is always better..."
"Quick and easy"
"I made this today and it turned out great! Super easy to make and everyone loved it. I will definitely make this again."
"I made this last summer and everyone enjoyed it. I will be making it again for dessert on Sunday. Super easy and quick to make."
"Sounds great and a much faster way than I usually make. Thanks"
"I am really surprised to find that many of you don't realize that one cup can be by weight (8 oz) or by volume ( one full measuring cup). Not everything that is measured is by weight alone. That is how you can have 3 cups of whipped topping in a 12 oz. container. Spoon it into a one cup measuring cup, level off the top, then scoop it into your recipe. Repeat 2 more times. That equals the 3 cups needed for your recipe! And use a "dry" measuring cup (no pour spout) because there is a big difference between a dry measuring cup & one for liquids."
