Did you all take advantage of this holiday?
Well, I sure did.
Even though National Pie Day was March 14th, Bethany and Tere over at M.O.M. had their 4th annual Pie Day on Sunday March 11th. (I decided to celebrate both days until I was completely sick to my stomach.)
Normally, I'm really good at looking away from these sugary treats, but dammit....sometimes you just gotta do it.
I don't think I'll be craving pie for another year though...which is good, right?
This year, I made these mini banana cream pies.(pictured above) So delicious and the perfect size to get a taste but not commit to a whole piece.
My intentions were really good in the beginning. I was going to make everything from scratch....but as the week went on, my recipe changed from homemade to semi-homemade....and then, well........just assembled.
You know.... why try to compete with companies that have spent years and thousands of dollars perfecting their recipes. At least that was my reasoning, plus my oven was broken.
Want to make these for yourself? Here's how.
I bought pre-baked pastry shells, piped in vanilla pudding, add a slice of banana, and top with whipped cream.
Done! Shameless, I know.
