Banana Cream Pie

This week at Tuesdays with Dorie we are going bananas, Banana Cream Pie that is. This pie has a flour crust, a pasty cream filling with sliced bananas, and a whipped cream topping. This is not at all like my regular cream pie. It has cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg and the filling is more butterscotch that vanilla. The only problem I had with this pie was that the filling got very thick and needed to be whisked a bit before I could spread it over the crust and bananas.

I have a confession to make about pie crust. I rarely make them. I make lots of cream pies but I am guilty of using a boxed crust. I was hoping that this would change when I got a food processor a few years ago but after using it for making pie crust a few times I went back to my old cheating ways. My crust always seems so ugly and they are usually tough. This crust was easy to make and was tender and tasty. I hope that I will use this recipe again.

I served this pie for lunch on Sunday and everyone liked it. I thought that it tasted better the next day after it had chilled overnight but it was good both ways. While I liked this pie I don't think that it will replace banana pudding or butterscotch pie for me. Thanks to Amy of Sing for Your Supper for choosing this recipe.

I agree that it's better the second day after the flavors come together.
