I made banana pie today. 🙂 I decided to add approx. 2-3 bananas and 1 cup of walnuts to the banana pudding (Jell-O brand name) instead of slicing bananas on top of the crust like most recipes say to do (including the one on the jello box). I hate the artificial taste of pudding. So, I wanted it to taste more like bananas. This does!! This tastes like banana bread pie! I love it! From now on, I will always add mashed bananas and walnuts to the pudding mixture before chilling it. The only thing missing is some cream. The crust I made is from crushed Biscoff Lotus cookies. They taste good with bananas in my opinion. I can’t seem to find graham crackers in South Korea. That’s ok. When in doubt, just crush your favorite cookie, add a couple tablespoons of butter, and boom! Your own crust. I’d like to call this banana bread cream pie. 😉
Sweet Potato Cupcakes and a Pie-thing. lol. So I’m trying to get the cupcakes to taste even better. This time I added my original granola recipe to them. A perfect addition. And I used some of the cupcake batter to serve as a pie crust for the Pie thing. My 2nd batch of cup andcakes turned out moist and better than the first so did my sweet potatosOnly problem was the cast iron skillet left some kind of tasteless black residue on the pie. From now on, glass to bake in.
