I saw this recipe on the  Food Pusher Blog and thought – Wouldn’t this be great for a party or even Easter – Yes!. So I copied it here. This recipe would give everyone an opportunity to have a “little taste” of a sweet without ruining their diet. I plan to use Pillsbury ready-made crust – I know, but it is so easy. Let me know if you try it and what you think.
 

Bite Size Banana Cream Pie


Ingredients:

  •         1 small box instant vanilla pudding
  •          1 3/4 cups cold milk
  •          2-3 bananas, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  •          1 cup heavy whipping cream 
  •          1/4 cup powdered sugar
  •          1 batch of pie crust (see recipe below)
 
Directions:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk vanilla pudding mix and cold milk for 2 minutes.  
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.  (I’m not sure how long. Mine refrigerated overnight.)
  • Whip heavy cream and powdered sugar into stiff peaks.
  • Using either a pastry bag with an open star tip, or using a zip-top bag with  about 1/4 inch of a corner cut off, pipe about half a teaspoon of chilled pudding onto each pie crust piece.  
  • Place a slice of banana on top of the dab of pudding.  
  • Then squeeze about 1 1/2 teaspoons of pudding onto each banana slice.
  • Refrigerate the pies while you prep the whipped cream into another pastry bag (or the same one with the tip washed), and then pipe about 1 1/2 teaspoons of whipped cream onto each pie.  
  • Refrigerate until  ready to serve.  
  • Makes…um…I’m not sure, but I’d guess about 3 dozen bite-size pies.
