Are you looking for an easy and foolproof Banana Cream Pie Recipe? Look no further than this amazing choice. A classic but easy recipe will wow your guests while coming together in just minutes!
One of my favorite things about this banana cream pie recipe is how easy it is to throw together. I always have a couple ready-made graham cracker crusts, cream cheese, vanilla pudding, and (unless the kids went crazy) bananas. If you keep these on hand like I do, you'll be able to whip this up in no time at all!
Banana Cream Pie Recipe
Prefer to make your own graham cracker crust? It's pretty easy – just pulse one package in the food processors until it's finely ground. Mix in 5 Tbsp melted butter & ¼ cup sugar and press into your pie pan. Bake for 5-7 minutes at 350°. Allow this to cool before continuing as instructed below.
While I keep ready made crusts on hand, I prefer using my deep dish pie plate for a pie like this. Since you are adding extra fruit onto the crust, it can easily make it much taller than a simple pudding pie. A deep dish pie plate works excellent for this purpose!
