This is the easiest banana cream pie out there. And if you were to ask, I'd tell you it was the best banana cream pie out there! Another great thing about this pie recipe - it makes two pies! You can make one for a friend and keep one for yourself. Although, I bet you friend wouldn't complain about having two!
Banana Cream Pie
Adapted from The Girl Who Ate Everything
2 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter (melted)
Combine all ingredients and divide for two pies. Grease the bottom and up the sides of a pie plate. Press the mixture on the bottom and up the sides of prepared pie plate. Refrigerate while preparing the pie filling.
1 small box of vanilla instant pudding
1 cup cold water
1 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
Piles and piles of slices banana (about 4 small or 3 large)
1/2 pint whipping cream (whipped)
Combine vanilla pudding mix, water, and milk. Fold in whipped cream until well combined.
Remove pie crusts from the refrigerator and place banana slides evenly between the two pies. Top each with half of the prepared filling.
1/2 pint whipping cream
1/3 cup powdered sugar
Whip cream and sugar until peaks from. Top each pie with half the topping.
Looking to make this easier? Buy a pre-made pie crust (graham, chocolate, etc). Buy cool whip instead of heavy whipping cream.
It will be enjoyed any way you decide to make it. So go ahead, enjoy some dessert in this steamy heat without turning the oven on!
