Love Love Pies

Good Morning Folks~ ~ ~
Pies are one of my favorite foods. How about you?

Today I am sharing one of my favorite recipes. I usually have the ingredents in the kitchen so I don't have to make a special trip to the store when the sweet tooth strikes! Unlike banana bread please use firm yellow bananas for this pie.
I also have to share with you the great find I came across last weekend at a local flea market.
See the lovely pink plates in the picture? These are only 3 of the 5 I purchased for $1.50 for all!
Can you believe it, I almost jumped up and down right there in front of her. Love a bargain.
How about you?

1 C. Flour
1/2 C Softened Butter
1 C. finely chopped Pecans
Mix together and pat into a 10" Deep Dish Pie Plate.
Bake @350* for 25-30 minutes~ ~Cool

1 pkg. softened cream cheese (8oz.)
1 C Confectioners suger
2 8 0z. tubs Cool Whip~ ~USE ONLY 1/2 of 1 tub now.
Mix these 3 and spread into crust.
Layer on 4 ripe bananas, Sliced.
Mix Together:
1 small pkg. instant Vanilla or Coconut pudding
1 1/3 C. Milk
Let stand for 1 minute to thicken in bowl then pour over bananas.
Be sure to cover them so they do not brown.
Pile on remaining Cool Whip.
Be Sure to stop by for a visit at Gollum's House to see the links for everyone who participated in this weeks Foodie Friday.
and Thanks to Dear Gollum for hosting Foodie Friday.
Have a Wonderful Fathers Day Weekend

Yum! Thanks for a different take on banana cream pie. I've always loved my mom's with merguine, but I'm up for trying this one also.

I love this recipe for banana cream pie..the pecans in the crust and the cream cheese. I am going to have to give this pie a try.

Excuse me while I wipe the drool from the corner of my mouth. I love a pie with a crust like that because my pastry is the worst in the world.

That pie recipe sounds like it could become my all-time favorite in a heartbeat. Those are the prettiest pink plates ~ I sure wish we had more fleamarkets around here.

Mmmm! Great combo - bananas and pecans. I'm also drooling over your plates - $1.50 each and they are very pretty. ~ Robyn

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. Your pie sound scrumptous! I will for sure try to make it. I had a question. Do you bake the pie crust blind??

The pie looks delicious! I was stopping by your blog to respond to the comment you left about the table I painted black. It looked pretty white, but it did not go with the decor in my kitchen. Because the table had so many "curves" and "scallops" to it, it looked a little too "girly". I felt like it looked like a "princess" table from a story book! I am thinking about adding white chairs to my kitchen table right now. I think you will like your table white. I can't wait to see it!
