I used an old family favorite cream pie filling and spread over a decadent black bottom pie topped with banana's to create this recipe. You could use an instant vanilla pudding and pie filling, for a quicker version of this pie, if you prefer.

How to Make Black Bottom Choco-Peanut Butter Banana Cream Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. BLACK BOTTOM:
    Brush pie crust with slightly beaten egg white. (NOTE: you will not use the whole egg white, just brust the pie crust and disgard the rest). Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and add Chocolate Filling.
  3. In a heavy sauce pan over a low heat, melt chocolate in heavy cream. Once melted remove from heat and add chopped peanuts and peanut butter; spread evenly onto bottom of pie crust. Place in freezer to cool while preparing cream custard.
  4. Once the pie crust/chocolate has cooled, layer sliced banana's over chocolater layer.
  5. CREAM PIE FILLING:
    In a double boiler, over medium heat combine; sugar, flour, and salt; add milk. Whisk and cook until mixture begins to thicken. Reduce heat slightly and then add egg yolks and continue to whisk and cook until mixture reaches a thick consistency.
  6. Remove from heat, add; butter and vanilla. NOTE: Since I am using banana'a I will let this mixture come to room temperature before pouring into pie shell.
  7. Pour pie filling into baked pie shell. Top with whipped topping.

    NOTE: I had a little custard leftover. Refrigerate and enjoy with some vanilla wafers another time.
  8. WHIPPED TOPPING:
    Pour cold whipping cream into a cold bowl. Beat on high speed of hand mixer until it starts to thicken; add sugar and continue beating until it forms a peak.

    NOTE: you can dollop onto pie or pipe a decorative design.
