Peanut Butter Banana Cream Pie
This is my favorite pie of all time. No joke. It’s so quick and easy but tastes like it took 3 days to make. Easy to make it dairy free as well… just substitute tofutti cream cheese for regular cream cheese, you’ll never know the difference! (Who would’ve thought Cool Whip has no milk in it?)
Peanut Butter and Banana Cream Pie
1 cup vanilla wafer cookies
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (4 oz.) cream cheese
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 oz. frozen whipped topping
1 1/2 cups (2 whole) sliced bananas
1/4 cup chocolate sundae syrup
Preheat oven to 350Ëš F. To prepare crust, place cookies in a food processor and process until finely ground. Add 1/3 cup brown sugar and melted butter; pulse 2 or 3 times or just until combined. Press into bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake for 10 minutes; cool completely on wire rack. (Or, do it the easy way and buy a pre-made Nilla wafer crust).
To prepare filling, place 3/4 cup brown sugar, cream cheese, peanut butter, and vanilla in a bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
Arrange banana in bottom of prepared crust. Spread peanut butter mixture over banana; drizzle with syrup. Cover and freeze 8 hours; let stand at room temperature 15 minutes before serving.
