And y'all: I was shocked at how easy it was…homemade crust and all! Not only was it easy, it was absolutely delicious and was gone from our fridge in a mere three days. (Yikes!) It tasted just like I remember my Nana's tasting, so I knew I'd done it right.
This is a yummy dessert to make for Easter lunch, too, which is definitely what I'll be doing this year!
Nana's Blueberry-Banana Pie
1 stick butter, softened
1 cup flour
2 T. sugar
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 (8 oz.) container Cool Whip
2-3 bananas, sliced thin
1 can blueberry pie filling
1. Begin by making your crust: mix together 1 stick butter, 1 cup flour and 2 T. sugar in a bowl and press into a pie plate. Bake at 350* until it browns (about 20-30 minutes). Let cool completely.
2. Line the cooled pie shell with the sliced bananas. (I do mine in a circular formation.)
3. Then, mix together the cream cheese, sugar and Cool Whip. Pour this over the bananas.
4. Top with the can of blueberry pie filling.
*Note: You can eat this right away, but I like to let mine sit in the refrigerator overnight. It softens the crust and allows the flavors to meld together just so that it tastes divine!
