This might be the fanciest pie I’ve ever made. I mean, there’s meringue on it. Yeah. Fancy.
Honestly, I’m not that much of a banana fan. I think I used to like them a lot more when I was a kid. But there’s also bourbon in this pie, so it’s okay.
I originally got the idea for this pie after stumbling across this Butterscotch Banana Pudding Pie at work. Have you ever seen a recipe somewhere and immediately thought, Hey, this would also be good with this ingredient and that ingredient. Sometimes this happens to me.
This pie has a Vanilla Wafer crust, a layer of sliced bananas, creamy butterscotch filling, a layer of whole Vanilla Wafers, more yummy butterscotch filling, and fluffy meringue. The butterscotch filling is so good by itself, I almost wanted to just fill a pie crust with it instead and dive right in. As for the bourbon, I added some to the crust, filling, and meringue. So basically all of it. There actually isn’t much bourbon because I was afraid it would be too strong. But there’s just a slight hint of it, so you can definitely add a little more if you decide to give this pie a try.
I’m super excited to share this pie with you! Because I adapted a recipe I found at work, I decided to post the recipe on the MyRecipes.com blog! So if you want to see the recipe, you can check it out here! Maybe, if you want, you can leave me a comment, too 🙂
I know this is a short post, so hopefully my next one will be longer! New things soon, though!
