When you've got a sweet tooth and nothin' in the cabinets!
My mother has a bad habit of buying bananas in excess... but by the time we actually *want* them, they're already mushy and super-spotted... So i figured i'd do something about it! I rummaged through our cabinets to find something to make sweets with... this, is the child of my *cough* genius (yeah right XD) and our pantry. d'aww... isn't it cute? lol.

  • How to bake a banana pie. Banana Pudding Pie - Step 1
    Step 1

    What you'll need:

    (ignore the junk in the background. i took a break from making purses.. lol)

    1x - box of Vanilla Pudding Mix
    2x - Bananas
    1x - tube of vanilla Wafer cookies. (I used Maria's Gamesa)
    2 1/2 cups of Cold milk (not pictured)
    4 Tbsp - Butter or Margarine (Not pictured)
    1x - Tub Cool Whip

  • How to bake a banana pie. Banana Pudding Pie - Step 2
    Step 2

    Take 1/2 of the tube of cookies, and place them in a plastic bag. Crush them into fine crumbs -- this will make the crust.

    Once completely crushed, mix in 4tbsp melted butter (or margarine, whatever you have...)

    Mix until moist, and press into the bottom of a pie pan (You don't have to use glass, it's just all i have.)

    (I would crush yours more than i did mine... but i was a little rushed. the noise of the crushing/pounding was making the dogs bark! lol)

  • How to bake a banana pie. Banana Pudding Pie - Step 3
    Step 3

    Slice 1 whole banana into as many slices as you can (but not too thin!)

  • How to bake a banana pie. Banana Pudding Pie - Step 4
    Step 4

    Lay the slices on top of the crust so that you can layer it later. (You can do this in whatever pattern you like, I just did mine simple circle)

  • How to bake a banana pie. Banana Pudding Pie - Step 5
    Step 5

    Mix your vanilla pudding according to the package directions for "Pudding Pie"

    For my box, this requires only 2 1/2 cups of milk. (Make sure there are no clumps!)

    Once mixed, Pour (carefully!) over your layered bananas. (If you do it too quickly, your bananas won't stay in place and will float throughout your pudding mixture)

  • How to bake a banana pie. Banana Pudding Pie - Step 6
    Step 6

    Cut another banana the same way you did the last one, and layer it (carefully) on top of the pudding. (As you go, the pudding *should* start to thicken and the bananas shouldn't sink into it.)

    Again, whatever pattern you like is fine it doesn't matter! lol.

  • How to bake a banana pie. Banana Pudding Pie - Step 7
    Step 7

    Spoon your Coolwhip onto the top and gently spread it around over the top (gently, because you could push your bananas out of place!)

    You could be fancy and use a piping bag for this too, but since nothing lasts too long in my house to look fancy *for*, i just spooned it on.

    I *did* however, place my last 3 banana slices on top. :-P

    ==============================

    Refridgerate until firm, and serve! :-D
