You'll get many compliments when you serve this layered banana beauty. It's a snap to prepare because the filling starts with instant pudding mix. —Isabel Fowler, Anchorage, Alaska

    Great pie! I get rave reviews every time it make it. I didn't have pecans the first time so I used almonds the I grinned down. Loved the almond flavour with the bananas,so I always use almonds now.

    The pie itself was very good, but the crust just didn't pass. -Lori in WI.
