Hello, Delicious: Black Bottom Banana Cream Pie


I’m an admitted picky pie person. Fruit pies just aren’t my thing, much to my husband’s chagrin.  I’m not saying I don’t like fruit desserts, that’s not it at all!  I love a good crisp, cobbler or shortcake.  I’m just not into fruit pies.  I’ll take one for the team and bake one up a couple of times a year, and I may even enjoy it (see my Salted Caramel Apple Pie post here), but my fruit pie baking days are few and far between.

I do, however, really enjoy cream pies.  French Silk, Banana Cream, Lemon Meringue…now you’re talking!Black Bottom Banana Cream Pie

When I came across this recipe in my The Best of Cooking Light cookbook, I knew I had to try it.  The name “Black Bottom Banana Cream Pie” alone just sounds too good to pass up! Looking over the recipe, it was surprisingly easy AND since it’s from Cooking Light, we didn’t feel quite as guilty as we each reached for “just another sliver” once we’d finished our first piece.Black Bottom Banana Cream Pie
