TWD- Banana Cream Pie

For this weeks TWD Amy of Sing for Your Supper chose Banana Creme Pie, pages 342 and 343 of Baking From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.


This is classic pie given a couple of tweaks.  The custard filling is spiked with spice and brown sugar to give it a caramel feel.  The whipped cream topping is cut with a touch of sour cream.

Instead of the show stopping 9 inch-er I made 6x 4 inch individual serves.  This meant I could have fresh banana cream pie three days in a row!

I have considered adding a little dark rum to this.  I think I am a custard purist but this is nice.

Now go and check out the TWD blogroll and see what other creations our clever group of bakers came up with.

  1. Ooooh … that looks good. I thought about doing individual pies or tarts, but ( a ) I couldn’t find my tart pans and ( b ) I wanted to make my first TWD recipe by the book just to see how things worked. I love the pastry cream for this one, so I’m definitely going to play around with it and keep it handy for holiday treats.
