Reviews for Old-Fashioned Banana Cream Pie
Sort By :
Yummy!! It's quick and easy. Instead of the crust suggested, I made a coconut crust from a coconut banana pie recipe from a TASTE OF HOME cookbook for a tropical twist. I would not use "Old-Fashioned" in describing this pie just in honor of my mother and grandmother, They both made beautiful homemade custards for banana and coconut pies. For the most of us working, running about for our family events, making dinner and squeezing in a homemade dessert, this recipe is very good and definitely a keeper for the family, company coming over and a great way to end a hectic day to enjoy dessert and a cup of coffee with those you love! So for the rest of comments "grumpin' ...get over it! It is what it is!
great pie! Easy, quick and inexpensive. This will be one of our go-to desserts when we're craving something sweet. Thank you!
made this and it was not an easy job due a mistake i made in the calculation of Cups to grams ( because i'm Dutch and not use to work with cups (-: ) but after the correction it was tasty and good looking too. Thanks for this recipe
This is so easy! I took the advice of some reviews and used banana pudding. My family loved it but next time I will use vanilla pudding. I thought the banana pudding gave it an "artificial" taste. And I agree with others. Stop criticizing recipes just because they take shortcuts. If you don't want to make the recipe as written, just don't! But some of us have very busy lives and appreciate having a great recipe that is so easy.
This is nothing new, I've been doing "cream" pies this way for over 30 years, mainly because I don't care for the taste of cooked custard. By the way, this is not "old-fashioned, unless of course, you've been using my method, and it certainly isn't anything like this recipe!!!!! I don't think this deserves a rating, but I can't post if I don't, so here's your zero star, in the form of 1 star!
