Banana cream pie gone trifling....a TWD post

Since I really hate missing my TWD, I found a way to still participate that was quick and easy! Amy of Sing for your Supper chose the Banana Cream Pie on pages 342 and 343 of Dorie's Baking: From my home to yours cookbook.


Grumpy likes banana pudding parfaits. So, I grabbed the Nilla Wafers and made the pudding. Layered the pudding, wafers, and sliced bananas, then refrigerated the pudding. Instead of mixing the heavy cream topping (which I am sure is delish!) I used Cool Whip for the topping. I also used only 1% milk in the recipe instead of the whole milk it calls for. We have to eat as low fat here as possible. Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

For the recipe, please check out Amy's blog post. To see how other TWD bakers fared, please check out our blogroll!
