This Pie's A Keeper!
I made this no-bake pie for a Sunday treat and it was the best! The recipe is out of the latest Simple and Delicious:
Banana Cheesecake Pie
1 pkg. (11.1 oz.) no-bake home style cheesecake mix
1/2 c. crushed vanilla wafers (about 15)
2 Tbs. sugar
1/2 c. cold butter
1 c. plus 1 1/2 c. milk, divided
1 pkg. (3.4 0z.) instant banana cream pudding mix
2 medium bananas, cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 c. whipped topping
1/4 c chopped pecans, toasted
In a large bowl, combine contents of the crust mix, wafers and sugar.; cut in butter until mix resembles coarse crumbs. Press onto bottom and up sides of an ungreased 9 inch deep-dish pie plate. In a large bowl, beat 1 c. milk and content of filling mix on low speed until blended. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes or until smooth (filling will be thick). Spoon into crust. Chill for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk remaining milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Arrange banana slices over filling. Spread with pudding, then whipped topping. Sprinkle with pecans. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
