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!
A Slice of Elvis – Peanut Butter Banana Pudding Pie
24 Nutter Butter cookies, finely crushed
⅓ cup butter, melted
2 bananas, sliced
1 box cook and serve vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
¼ cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Combine cookie crumbs and butter. Pour into 9-inch pie plate and press in the bottom and up the sides of the dish. Place sliced bananas on top of crust. Set aside.
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.
Before serving, mix together whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla. Whip until it holds soft peaks. Spread over pudding and serve!
So, for curiosity sake, why is it called "A Slice of Elvis"?
that pic is great. the whipped cream looks so yum!
Hmmm,that crust sounds retty good. A nice change from nilla wafers or a graham cracker crust.
Nutterbutter crust, that is genius, Steph! I'm thinking of a Reese's Pieces pie using these.
Very clever and sounds delish!
I just love the ratio of whipped topping to pie. 1:1 in my book is always the way to go! Looks great=)
Oooo chocolate cream pie + nutterbutter crust !! I hope to see that posted on your blog in the future 🙂
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!
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……
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) ?
Funny, I luv nutter butters and really don't like the bananas in banana pudding.
Thanks for sharing.
That just looks too good.
