Bananas are always super buys (and one of our favorite buys!) But with the warmer weather coming, it's the perfect time to match the favorite and the bargain with a "keep the kitchen cool" no-bake creamy banana pie that's so good and so fast that I've included it in my "Cookin' Quickies" cookbook!
In a bowl, we combine 1 small package banana cream instant pudding mix, 1 cup milk, and 1/4 cup coffee liqueur. Beat it until it's smooth, and gently fold in 1 cup whipped topping.
Now, we layer 2 sliced bananas that we dipped in a bit more coffee liqueur into a store-bought chocolate graham cracker pie crust.
Sprinkle on a couple chopped-up toffee candy bars, top it with the pudding mixture, cover it, chill it in the fridge for about an hour or so (until it sets) and, when we spoon on a bit more topping and sprinkle on some more candy bar garnish, we've got all the favorites together in a mellow banana pie with a candy crunch!
And if you want to use sweetened strong black coffee in place of the liqueur, that'll work too! Either way, it's a simple "mix, layer and chill."
If you’d like the recipe, just send a self-addressed, stamped envelope, marked "Banana Cream-Crunch Pie," to me, Mr. Food, right here at the station, or look for it online for having all your favorites in one!
And my advice? Set a slice aside for yourself first because they'll leave you with nothing, and "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!®"
