March 2nd is National Banana Cream Pie Day
you're looking for something to do today then why don't you sit down
and have some pie? It's National Banana Cream Pie Day!
Let's get right into celebrating National Banana Cream Pie
WHY IS THIS A
This lovely cream pie gets its own holiday because it is
probably one of the top 10 most popular pies to this date. I will admit
that before today I had never eaten a banana cream pie. BUT after I
made one and ate a slice I can also admit that I'm a fan for life! So I
for one definitely have no reason to question why this is a holiday.
Cream pies are pie crusts that are filled with a sort of
made from things like milk flower and eggs. They come in a variety of
different flavors but for this one you add slices of bananas.
you want to be sure that you bake your pie crust first so that it has
enough time to cook and gives your pie a nice firm wall of crust
surrounding it, since the rest is just pudding and fruit. Poke holes in
the crust with a fork if you want to keep it from rising up as you bake
it. When it's done you can top it with whipped cream or more
banana slices if you like but please resist doing what you sometimes
see on TV. Yes, cream pies are known for being thrown in peoples' faces
but banana cream pie is just too tasty to waste! In fact, when you see
people do it on TV they're actually using shaving cream... so even they
realize cream pies are too good to toss into someone's face ;).
Spoon the goodness into your mouth, bite by bite!
So how can you celebrate today? Well, how about you head to
your favorite restaurant and then order a slice of banana cream pie for
dessert? This option is always the best option if you're busy and just
want to relax today. I'm sure it'll end up being a delicious dessert.
Or you could go to a grocery store and see if you can't pick
whole, ready-made banana cream pie. This option requires just as little
effort but you get a whole pie! That way you can share it with friends
and family... or just pig out all day haha.
And yes, of course
you can make this yourself! It's really not that difficult and it may
end up being a lot healthier and just as tasty if not more than the
store bought pie. Most people will have a lot of the ingredients in
their house; all you'll really need to pick up is a pie crust. Search
around the internet for a recipe and you'll see what I mean.
you can actually buy a banana cream pie mix from companies like Jell-O
to help cut out a few steps in the cooking process. Or heck,
companies even provide you with the banana cream pie filling in a
can. Helps get you out of the kitchen quicker ;). I
you have a wonderfully pie-filled day!
