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
Makes 8-10 servings (or less if you go back for 2nds or 3rds… hehe)
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.
I know this is a little late, but I think the frozen whipped topping is like cool whip or whatever frozen. Like just put the cool whip or equivilant in the freezer overnight? I’m not too sure, but thats my best guess.
This is going to sound so dumb but what is frozen whipped dessert? is it something I can make an equivalent of?
I really like the look of this but in New Zealand we really dont have all the same pre packaged stuff as the states..
This is my kind of dessert! Truly I could eat the whole thing.
