Hi friends! It’s pretty much been forever, but I’m back in California so things can get back to normal!
In the past few weeks, quite a bit has happened. I graduated! I have a Master’s! Woo!
My hat didn’t fit on my head. Such is life.
Then I came back to California and my sister and I made the most amazing pies EVER!
Okay so one sorta melted. No biggie.
AMAZING Peanut Butter (or Nutella) Banana Pie
inspired by Joy the Baker’s No Bake Peanut Butter Tart
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (or Nutella or other nut butter)
4 oz cream cheese, softened
7 oz (1/2 can) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup heavy cream for whipping
1 banana, sliced
1 tbsp butter
1 prepared graham cracker crust
1 cup cool whip or other whipped cream for topping
In a pan, melt butter and fry banana slices until golden (you can probably skip this step and just use fresh bananas, but the crispy fried banana was pretty delicious). Arrange fried banana on the bottom of the prepared graham cracker crust.
Using a mixer (or a strong arm) mix together the cream cheese, peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk. Once combined, set aside. In a separate bowl, whip the cream until it holds solid peaks. Then fold together the peanut butter mixture and the whipped cream. Once combined (don’t over mix), spoon the mixture into the pie pan, top with whipped topping and chill for a few hours before serving.
We made two, one with nutella and one with peanut butter. They were both a hit, but I won’t lie: the peanut butter one is to die for!
You should probably go make it now. You won’t regret it.
