How to Make Banana cream pie for my favorite son in law….


  1. Mix ginger snaps with 3 tablespoons of butter and press into a pie pan. Bake at 325 for about 10 minutes, let cool.
  2. Melt 3 teaspoons butter in a frying pan, carefully add bourbon, removing the pan off the heat before adding. Slice the bananas in thin slices and add to the butter and bourbon. Cook till the bananas are all coated and soft. Remove from heat, chill.
  3. Mix pudding with both milks, and beat with a hand mixer till it becomes thick add ½ of the cooled banana mixture and at this point you’ll want to carefully mix with a spoon as to not to mash the banana’s. Put the other ½ of the banana mixture on the bottom of the crust and put the pudding mixture on top of this…. Top with ginger snaps if desired. Chill for several hours.
  4. You can change things up a bit…by making a chocolate wafer crust.
    You can also omit the bourbon and add Cream D Banana…..liquor
    ? ? ? this is truly a dessert for adults
