Pin It Peanut Butter Banana Cream Pie
Again a post with no solid pictures but here it is anyway. For my going away potluck at work I wanted to go out with a bang, so I whipped up this little number. I regret not documenting this one throughout because it's definitely more impressive that way, but you can check out the Bourbonnatrix Bakes site for photos.
I think the fact that this lone piece was all there was left (and that was because I specifically set it aside for Tom) speaks to what people thought: they loved it! People were raving about how good it was and the chef/baker always appreciates the compliments. My co-worker said I should re-name it "The Elvis," on account of his love of fried PB and banana sandwiches.
This was the perfect layering of Nilla wafer crust, homemade vanilla pudding, freshly sliced bananas and peanut butter cream topping. Is there anything better?! Love the PB banana combo, love the pie. Plus it was easy enough that I would actually make it again. However, if you are looking for a shortcut, you can always use instant pudding mix instead. Try this one next time you've got someone you'd like to win over through their sweet tooth.
