Banana cream pie is a surprisingly overlooked dessert option. Probably because store-bought banana cream pie usually tastes flat, or is really more like cream pie with banana flavoring. Not this banana cream pie recipe.

Banana cream pie is a surprisingly overlooked dessert option. Probably because store-bought banana cream pie usually tastes flat, or is really more like cream pie with banana flavoring. Not this banana cream pie recipe. Use ripe bananas, a crunchy Graham cracker crust and a hint of vanilla, and you’ve got the type of homemade pie that you can serve to almost any group that’s happened into your dining room. Or backyard. Did we mention that it’s a classic post-BBQ dessert? 

One last thing: Banana cream pie is also versatile. You can serve it chilled (recommended) or even at room temperature.
