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

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

    Oh Shelby! This looks and reads absolutely delightful! You have now sorely tempted me as I am fasting for the Lenten period and this dessert is taboo! LOL But my oh my, it really does make me want to run downstairs and whip a few up! Thanks for this, it has been bookmarked.

    I’m all about your banana cups! I opted out this week on the pie. Being bad because I am so busy. Hope you are getting better every day. Happy Easter to you!
