A Slice of Elvis – Peanut Butter Banana Pudding Pie

Peanut Butter Banana Pudding Pie

I use to love banana pudding when I was a kid – more specifically, I loved my Mom’s banana pudding.  I can remember waiting at the table with my little brother waiting for Mom to finish making the banana pudding. We loved to eat it warm.  We also preferred more Nilla wafers than bananas – turns out we just really liked warm vanilla pudding and Nilla wafers!  We would all fight over it!

I recently saw Southern Living’s recipe for banana pudding made with Nutter Butters.  It caught my eye because I love Nutter Butters. Seriously, I can’t buy them because I will eat the whole bag by myself and I don’t even eat sweets. 

Since it was a holiday and all, I decided to combine the two recipes into a pie.  I did a Nutter Butter crust and my childhood banana pudding.  I topped the pie with whipped cream because that is what I like.  My Mom would make meringe – Chicken Legs prefers meringe, but he wasn’t the cook. 🙂  The pie was great and I will be using this crust for another dessert – probably a cheesecake!

Cook pudding according to directions on the box.  Pour over bananas in crust.  Cover with plastic wrap to prevent skin forming (press plastic wrap directly on the pudding).  Refrigerate until set.

  4. i ADORE banana pudding. in fact, i rarely make it because i know i will eat it ALL 🙂 i've never had it with a nutterbutter crust though–i can't wait to use that for something!

  5. Katherine – The crust was great. It held up just like my usual graham cracker crusts. I plan on using it again soon. I'm thinking chocolate cream pie and nutter butter crust……

  6. Nutterbutter crust…now that's something new to me! How did the crust hold up? Was it just like using an oreo crust (same texture I mean) ?

  7. Funny, I luv nutter butters and really don't like the bananas in banana pudding.

    Thanks for sharing.
