How to Make Banana Cream / Pretzel Crust Pie

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 425 degree F.

    In a large mixing bowl ( I used my food processor )- combine flour, pretzels, salt and butter until texture is crumbly.
    Add water, mix well.
  • 2Dust a flat working surface with flour.

    Roll out crust on surface with a rolling pin until you have a nice, even crust (approximately 12 inch diameter)
  • 3Fold in half and gently place in the pie plate. (The crust is fragile but pinches together nicely if it falls apart).

    Flute edges, poke the bottom with a fork and bake 10-12 minutes.
  • 4Cool completely.
  • 5In a medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, 1/2 of a sliced banana, 1 cup non dairy whipped topping.
  • 6Spread cream cheese mixture on top of cooled pretzel crust.
  • 7Slice bananas on top of cheese mixture.
  • 8Mix pudding and milk until thickened
    .
    Pour over bananas.

    Layer with another sliced banana

    Top with 3 cups of non dairy whipped topping
  • 9Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

    May garnish with crushed pretzels or sliced bananas.

    A slice to follow, once chilled!

    So yummy!

    Enjoy!
