Banana Cream Pie

My husband and my Dad both LOVE Banana Cream Pie. Lucky for me this is a delicious pie that is simple to make and one recipe makes 2 pies. I made them each one for Fathers Day.  Next time you are in the mood for pie give this one try.


2 frozen pie crusts, baked according to package directions (or if you are ambitious you can make your own)
1 8 ounce pkg cream cheese, room temperature
1 small pkg instant vanilla pudding
1 small pkg instant banana cream pudding
2 3/4 cups milk
2 small containers of cool whip (or you can whip your own cream)
4 bananas


Bake pie crusts and allow to cool.
In a mixer whip up the cream cheese, add milk and puddings and mix until mostly smooth. There may be some really small lumps, that's okay.
With a large spoon gently fold in one container of cool whip.
Remember this makes 2 pies, so for each pie: Pour a small amount of pudding in bottom of crust, slice a banana  into pieces and layer over pudding mixture.  Add more pudding, another layer of bananas, more pudding and then top with 1/2 of the other container of cool whip.  It is best if it can be chilled for an hour or two, but can also be eaten immediately.  Enjoy.

i made this with homemade pie crust the other day. it was delicious. i hate how the bananas go brown so quickly though so next time i think i'll leave them out and slice up a few as we are ready to eat it. eh?
