I wish I could say that New Years Resolutions mean that pies are on hold for a while. But no. No no, I don’t wish that, because pies are always a good idea.
You know what else is a good idea: bourbon. Oh and bananas. We can’t forget bananas. I eat one everyday; they’re good for you. I don’t have bourbon everyday; we won’t talk about that. But in this pie form, I might be willing to do so. Although pie everyday might not be a good idea either, resolutions remember?
How about a resolution to try new things? I’ll be honest, the bourbon flavor is subtle, not overpowering. It’s pretty much perfect, like this pie. And really aren’t you tired of traditional banana cream pie? If you are, or even if you’re not, try this:
Bourbon Banana Pie
1 stick of butter, melted
1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 egg yolks
3/4 cup mashed banana (about 1 1/2 medium bananas)
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
3 tbsp Bourbon or other Whiskey
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup sugar
Pre-heat oven to 325F.
Combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and powdered sugar. Press into a 9 inch pie dish. Put in the fridge until ready to use.
In a large bowl, beat egg yolks for a few mins. Beat in banana, sweetened condensed milk and 1 tbsp bourbon. Pour mixture into prepared pie dish. Bake for 45 minutes (or until no jiggles when you shake it). Allow to cool completely. Once pie has cooled, make topping. Mix together sour cream, sugar and remaining 2 tbsp bourbon. Spread over the top of the pie. Refrigerate for a few hours and serve!
So given my obsession with adding alcohol to everything, it might seem like I’m an enormous lush. Trust me, I’m not cool enough to be one of those people. Pie on the other hand…
I’m definitely cool enough for pie. So are you. Go make this pie! or Pin It for future reference :) This is one you’re going to want to try.
