Why did I decide to make Banana Creme Pie? Oh, well one of my friends thinks he’s really good at making pies so he challenged me to a pie off. I know, its not a super unique idea, but I figured this was a good one to start off with.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2 2/3 cup of vanilla wafer cookies
1 tbl. Sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
4 Tbl. Melted Butter
To make the crust, first, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then, crunch up 2 2/3 cups of vanilla wafer cookies. Mix together the cookies, sugar, vanilla extract, and butter.
Place mixture into a pie dish and gently spread an even layer over the bottom and sides of the dish. Press crumbs in firmly to create a tightly packed crust. Bake for 12-15 min. or until golden brown.
Once you bake the crust, let it cool before adding the filling.
For the filling, I used Banana Creme Pie instant pudding.
Banana Creme Pie Instant Pudding : Whisk with milk for 5 min.
Once the crust was cooled and the pudding was done, I poured the pudding over the crust, and then added cool whip and extra Nilla crumbs to top it off! It was pretty dang good if I say so myself…maybe a little too good. Ok, I only had three pieces.
