He thinks I am joking, which I don't really understand, because this is obviously a very serious plan.
Fun people like to get pies thrown in their faces.
Plus pie is delicious so a family reunion planned around pie has to be a slam dunk.
Banana cream pie is one of my favorite cream pies. I love it the first day it's made when the bananas are still fresh, and it's pretty good the day after as well.
So many banana cream pies are insanely sweet, so I cut down the sugar a bit in this recipe. This is a really great pudding pie base, and coconut could be exchanged for the bananas (just mix 1 cup shredded coconut into the pudding) for a coconut version instead.
This pie MUST be refrigerated overnight before eating. The banana flavor intensifies overnight. If you eat it the day you make it, it will taste like a vanilla pudding pie with bananas mixed in.
We really can't have that, can we?
