Banana Cream Pie Day!

bananacream.jpg

 

Today is the day to appreciate that blissful combination of custard, cream, and banana. Oh YES. I rarely see this at the supermarket, so I keep forgetting it exists... Maybe this is actually my favorite pie ever??? It's up against chocolate pecan pie at this point... hmm. I think I love custard more than chocolate, so I'm crowning banana cream pie as my favorite. Smiley Very Happy

 

Now... where can I buy it? Have you seen it out in the wild at your local grocery stores? Or do you have a sweet little neighborhood bakery that makes a great banana cream pie or has a cool spin on it? Please share!

 

 Here are a few interesting recipes on this beloved pie: https://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/article/4-reasons-you-should-celebrate-national-banana-cream-pie-...

You know, now that you mention it, I never see banana cream pie in stores. That's criminal. 

 

This is one of the best pies ever.  I also like pecan pie and mince pie.

Re: Banana Cream Pie Day!

I don't really bake so I wonder if banana cream pies are trickier to make than the usual apple and pumpkin pies I always see in the grocery store bakeries. Just custard, whipped cream, and bananas in a crust.

 

Speaking of crust I was just made aware of THIS:

 

 

Perfect for banana cream pies!

Re: Banana Cream Pie Day!

Wife says it's because banana turns brown very quickly.

 

Awesome crust!

Re: Banana Cream Pie Day!

OHhhhhhhhhh that makes sense. How about they leave out the banana and bundle it with the pie; cut the banana and top it yourself. XD

Another suggestion, maybe they could just freeze it. Then maybe the bananas won't turn brown.

I'll have to consult She Who Must Be Obeyed about this.  I just eats'em, I'm not sure how they work.
