How To Make pistachio banana wedges

  • 1
    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. 2. In a large bowl, with an electric beater, cream together the granulated sugar and shortening until light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat thoroughly. 3. Gradually blend in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Beat in the mashed bananas and vanilla until smooth. 4. Fold in 3/4 cup of the chopped pistachios. Spread the mixture into the pie plate. 5. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool 30 minutes. 6. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until fluffy. Spread evenly over the top. Drizzle with the melted chocolate and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup pistachios.
