This week's Tuesday with Dorie is hosted by Amy of Sing for Your Supper, and she has chosen an all-American Banana Cream Pie for us to make this week.
I have never made Banana Cream Pie before, and I somehow imagined it to be a whole lot of whipped cream and bananas with nothing else. Wrong! This banana cream pie consists of a tart shell filled with a wonderful spiced pastry cream based on brown sugar, bananas and cream on top:
I used Dorie's pate sable for my tart shell because it is my favourite, and I didn't have much fun with her Good for Everything pie dough the last time I made it.
What can I say? This was heavenly. I honestly didn't expect to think much of it, but it was truly devine, and a new treat for me. My friend Veronica and my colleagues also enjoyed it.
You can check out how everyone else fared with this pie at the TWD blogroll.
