Peanut Butter Banana Pudding Pie

I recently got an email from Wayfair about entering their Battle of the Pies and I was sold before I even read the whole thing. Something about this fall has really brought out the domestic side of me. I am already pretty domestic but lately I have been borderline obsessive. I have been baking and cooking and freezing food for the last month with no signs of tiring out or getting bored. I’ve made soups, jams, pickles, crisps, brownies, muffins, and pies! My husband was thrilled at first but at this point I think he is starting to wonder if I need an intervention to save our grocery budget.

And then I got the email. And then I made this peanut butter banana pudding pie. And my husband had no complaints as he licked his fork clean. I’d like to think it was because he realized my recent baking craze had prepared me for thiiiiiiiiiis moment.

Now, you might be wondering how I will manage winning a virtual pie bake off where nobody will actually be tasting the pies…that’s where you come in. If you think my pie should win just let me know here, here, or here. Likes, loves, favorites, comments, shares, repins, regrams, retweets, you know the drill. The pie with the most social engagement will go down in history as the Wayfair Battle of the Pies CHAMPION!!!

With out further ado, here is my entry in all her sweet, slightly peanut buttery, wonderfully banana-ish glory.

Peanut Butter Banana Pudding Pie

Yield: Two 9″ pies + extra pudding filling

Crust:

1 stick butter, divided, melted
1/2 c. sugar, divided

Preheat oven to 375 F. In two bowls combine 1 1/3 c. crushed cookies, 4 Tbsp. melted butter, and 1/4 c. sugar. Mix well. Press into bottom and sides of a 9″ pie dish. Bake 5 minutes. Cool completely.

TIP: Use the bottom of a drinking glass to press the crust into the dish. I tried using my hands on one pie and a glass on the other. The glass was easier and less messy!

Filling: adapted from my favorite banana pudding recipe, here
8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
1/3 c. smooth peanut butter, at room temperature
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 package (5 oz.) instant vanilla pudding mix
3 c. cold milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tub (8 oz.) whipped topping, thawed, divided
2 bananas

In a medium bowl beat together cream cheese and peanut butter until combined. Add sweetened condensed milk, pudding mix, milk, and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Fold in half the whipped topping.

TIP: If you can’t get the pudding smooth try an immersion blender. “Room temperature” in the cooler months can still be too cold to get the cream cheese really smooth but the immersion blender got all my lumps out, quickly!

TIP: Forgot to thaw your whipped topping? Remove the lid, place in microwave, and defrost it for 30 seconds. Gently stir and defrost in 10-20 second intervals, stirring gently after each, until it is thawed.

To assemble the pie, slice 1 banana and place the slices evenly across the bottom of a cooled cookie crust. Pour half the pudding mixture over the bananas. Top with half the remaining whipped topping. Garnish with crushed cookie crumbs. Repeat with second pie crust. Chill before serving.
