Banana Cream Pie

Banana Cream PieCream cheese adds flavor and body to this yummy banana cream pie, perhaps the best you've ever eaten using a pudding mix.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (9-inch) baked pie crust
8 tablespoons (4 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups cold milk, plus 2 tablespoons
1 (3.4-ounce) package instant vanilla pudding and pie filling
2 bananas
2 cups whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cooking Directions:

  1. With an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons milk and mix, scraping the sides of the bowl, until the cream cheese is creamy and lump-free. Add the remaining milk; mix well. Add the vanilla pudding mix and beat on the lowest speed for 2 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, slice the bananas and place in a single layer on the bottom of the cooled pastry shell.
  4. Pour the pudding mixture over the bananas. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  5. Beat the cream together with the powdered sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Pipe or spread the whipped cream on top of the pie.
  6. Refrigerate 1 or more hours before serving.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
