Oh dear God is this pie good. Mr. B ate the WHOLE thing this weekend. Unfortunately, I'm not kidding! This is the best TWD recipe so far and I have Amy of Sing for Your Supper to thank for choosing this one.
I do have a confession to make...again. I used Pillsbury frozen pie crust. So sue me. It's easy and I hate to make pie crust.
As you can see, it kind of shrunk and it's just not pretty. But frankly, you could have put cardboard around this filling and it wouldn't have mattered. It was different than any banana cream pie I've had before....with the addition of the cinnamon and nutmeg it had a much different complexity.
And then Dorie goes and adds sour cream to the whipped cream topping and it just put it over the top.
Since I was usually the one cutting Mr. B another piece, I got the first bite every time. This just got better every day.
The only changes I made to the recipe were to double the topping. Mr. B loves him some whipped cream, plus I made the mistake of putting this into a deep dish pie pan (hence the shrinkage). It worked out!
This is definitely my "go-to" banana cream pie recipe from now on. Thanks, Dorie!
