Amy of Sing for Your Supper selected this weeks TWD recipe; banana cream pie. I am a huge fan of banana cream pie so naturally I was excited to make this. On my way home from work last week, I stopped off at my corner fruit stand and bought the most gorgeous bananas. 8 bananas for $1.50, what a bargain! I've made banana cream pies before, found here, but Dorie's pie is oh so different. Dorie's pie filling consists of spiced caramel-like flavorings including cinnamon and nutmeg, and lots of brown sugar.
The sliced bananas are spread throughout the filling and the whipped cream topping has a touch of sour cream in it; which I thoroughly enjoyed. I did make one alteration to this pie, and that was the crust. I was really in the mood for a crispy crunchy graham cracker crust rather than good ol' pie crust so I went with that. This pie was seriously fantastic and definitely tasted different than other banana cream pies that I've made. It seemed more classic and authentic and the not-to-sweet whipped topping really enhanced the fillings flavors. This is a pie I most certainly will make again.
