As much as I like to bake, pies are not my specialty.
My sister, Holly, is the pie-maker in the family.
But, my daughter wanted to make pies for Thanksgiving, so we busted out these banana cream pies using a semi-homemade approach. They were delicious!
2 frozen pie shells
2 large packages cook-n-serve vanilla pudding
2 pints whipping cream
*Mix up the pudding according to package directions and chill in fridge. Bake pie shells according to package directions and let cool. When ready to assemble, spread a little pudding in the bottom of each pie shell. Slice 1 1/2 bananas into each pie. Cover with the rest of the pudding. Whip the cream with a mixer until stiff. Add 1/3 cup sugar and a little vanilla while mixing. Scoop over pies using a cookie scoop. Chill until ready to serve.
