TWD: Banana Cream Pie

Amy of Sing for Your Supper picked Banana Cream Pie for this weeks TWD-recipe. I was excited, because this was a pie that I had actually made before and although it was a different recipe now I would have something to compare it to!

Last October I made my first Banana Cream Pie, that time it was for CEiMB and Heather from Randomosity and the Girl picked it.

For the pie I took the easy way out and bougth some puff pastry shells. The custard came together very easily: it did start to curdle just a bit, but that was soon solved by with some quick whisking action. After cooling down the custard was a bit too thick, so I thinned it by whisking in some cream as suggested in the P&Q.

This pie tasted okay, but I thought this custard tasted a bit too sugary/cinnamonny/eggy..... I'm not quite sure what it was that made me hesitant..... My dad loved it though!!. I actually preferred the one that I made last October, if you want to give that one a try, go here for the recipe!

Curious what my fellow TWD-ers thought of the Banana Cream Pie?? Check out the blogroll here!

Ow and one last thing: enter my giveaway (I know: another giveaway!!!), deadline is April 10th midnight Dutch time!!!

Yum! That looks amazingly good :) What a pity the custard was too eggy but it looks great. I have some bananas, some caramel and some cream in my fridge that's just dying to be made into something similar! :)

Amanda zei

Wow what beautiful little tarts! I loved this pie, though it definitely isn't a traditional sweet banana cream. Glad you dad liked it!

The Food Librarian zei

Oh! How cute! I love these!!!

Jules Someone zei

Glad that Dad enjoyed it! I may have to check out the other version.

Marie zei

I think your little pies look so cute Marthe! I was not sure I liked the custard either. I thought it tasted like graham crackers, but it kind of grew on me and by the time I finished I quite liked it!

Steph zei

Your tarts look really cute!

n.o.e zei

Could those little tarts be any cuter? Sorry you were disappointed in the flavor but at least you have a recipe you do like.

Teanna zei

I'm sorry you weren't a fan! Your little tartlets are super cute and I love how you decorated them!

myfamousrecipe zei

Even if you weren't in love with the flavor, you had to be proud of their appearance! These look great.

Sara zei

These mini pies are too cute. I have been wanting to try Ellie's recipe. Hopefully I will like hers better since it is healthier than this calorie fest!

chocolatechic zei

Gorgeous little tarts.

Peggy zei

Those tarts look fabulous! I didn't make them this week. I've been a bit overwhelmed lately. But I did the CEiMB last night and it was delicious. So was this banana cream not sweet enough?

farah zei

I love your little tartlets, so adorable! Sorry you weren't that keen on this recipe but glad your Dad like it :)

Michelle zei

Oh MY...your mini pies are so cute. I love the piped stars!

Tracey zei

Your tarts are so cute!! This crust gave me problems so I wish I'd bought some shells too :)

Liz zei

Cute little tarts! Using puff pastry dough is a great idea--a delicious, tasty shortcut.

Heather zei

Beautiful presentation!

TeaLady zei

Oh, those are yummy looking. And beautiful, too. I love the little tarts.

natalia zei

Ciao Marthe !! I love the mini they are very cute !!

Natashya zei

They look so cute! I am wishing I did minis now.

Anne zei

Those minis are cute! I'll have to try Ellie's recipe, too.

What's for Supper? zei

It looks great. I actually liked Dorie's much better than Ellie's! I wonder why. The fat content is probably way higher!

jesse zei

Your banana cream pies are sooooo adorable! They're so dainty and pretty!! I'm glad they turned out so good.

Gabe's Girl zei

Very very nice looking tarts. They are so dainty and special looking.

leanne zei

Wow those tarts are beautiful!

Cathy zei

Oh, it is great to know that you preferred Ellie's healthier version! I loved Dorie's, but it is so spectacularly loaded with fat/calories that I couldn't justify making it too often. I will have to try Ellie's! Your little tarts look beautiful!

This is my first banana cream pie, but I think I would like a more traditional recipe, too.

Cakelaw zei

Your pies are awfully cute Marthe, just like little flowers. Sorry the spicy custard wasn't your thing.

HoneyB zei

Your little pies are so cute!

Annette zei

Your little tarts are so pretty! Too bad you didn't love them. I had some issues making my pie, but thought it tasted good. Glad your dad liked it. My parents liked it too.
