Dessert Alert: Banana Pudding Pie

Avatar

With all the flavors of banana pudding, this banana pudding pie sits in a delightful vanilla wafer crust and is topped with freshly whipped cream.

do you ever find yourself so completely frazzled and overwhelmed that you need to stop and reset? this banana pudding pie was my reset. slowly stirring pudding while it bubbles on the stove is my kind of meditation. a crust that involves smashing vanilla wafers (check out my homemade vanilla wafer recipe HERE) into crumbs is cathartic. and is there anything more comforting than sliced bananas topped with homemade vanilla pudding and freshly whipped cream? i don’t think so.
