Rando Tuesdays: Quick Oreo Banana Cream Pie


This recipe is my own (read: it is something of a botch-up). In an an attempt to use up what has become an alarming number of jello and pudding mixes in my cupboard, I threw together this pie as an additional dessert for some friends. People like to choose, they say. And besides, I don’t like bananas, so it is good to feed it to people who do.

I would do many things differently next time, the most significant of which is freezing this pie instead of refrigerating it. Perhaps if I had used more pudding and less cream or Cool Whip instead of heavy cream, I would not have had such a gloppy mess, but alas, I didn’t do either of those things. The saving grace: it had good flavor!

Try your own version–it’s (nearly) impossible to mess up.



Quick Oreo Banana Cream Pie

1 box banana pudding mix

1 cup cold milk

1 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 banana

1 Oreo pie crust

Peel the banana and slice into 1/4″ rounds. Unwrap the crust and place banana pieces all over the bottom, filling the bottom of the crust.

Whip the heavy cream in the bowl of an electric mixer until it reaches a the stiff peak stage. Whisk the pudding mix, cinnamon and the cold milk in a bowl. Once set, fold in the whipped cream into the pudding mixture.

Pour the pudding filling into the Oreo crust tin. Freeze until set. (Or, if you want a gloppy mess, you can refrigerate it for however long you want. :])
