Watch Us Make: Banana Cream Pie

Have a few extra bananas on hand? Use them up to make this all-star Banana Cream Pie.

There’s nothing as refreshingly sweet as a slice of banana cream pie.

Brought to the Taste of Home test kitchen by home cook Bernice Morris, this recipe makes a perfect version of the old-fashioned dessert. Bernice reflects, “This pie was a sensational creamy treat anytime Mom served it.”

It’s become so popular with our audience today, we think it’s due for a comeback.

Like many great recipes, the pie is made up of simple ingredients. A flaky crust. (You can use a pre-made pie crust in a pinch, but its simple to make from scratch-try this recipe for Easy Pie Crust.) A thick, slightly sweet vanilla custard prepped on the stovetop. Freshly sliced bananas layered through for the dessert’s signature flavor. For the finishing touch, garnish the pie with whipped cream-and you guessed it-more bananas!

We’re nuts about making this dessert for spring and summer celebrations, but any of our deliciously cool desserts will do. Read on for more no-bake pies.
