Lara Katz: Dreaming Up Delicious


Cookies & Cream Banana Pie

A Delicious Combination of Banana Cream Pie and Oreos

by: Lara Katz

I love banana cream pie, and I love Oreos, so when I made a banana cream pie with an Oreo crust last week I thought it would taste even better with whole Oreo cookies in it. The next time I made it I added a layer of Oreo cookies on top of the crust and the result was delicious. Who would have thought bananas and Oreos went so well together, but they do! Add this to unexpected food pairings that taste great together.

This pie is so easy to make. There is no baking involved, but must be done the night before you plan on serving it to allow the Oreos to soften. 

The Oreo Cookie Prank You Should NEVER Play On Anyone


1 package Oreo cookies, half for the crust and half for on top of the crust
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 tbsp butter
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp 35% cream
3 ripe bananas, sliced
1 1/2 cups 3.25%  milk
3 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp cornstarch
3 egg yolks
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup 35% whipping cream
2 tsp sugar
left over Oreo crumbs for dusting
  Place half a package of Oreo cookies in a food processor and process until cookies are fine crumbs.
  Mix crumbs with melted butter and press evenly and firmly into a 9" pie plate sprayed with non stick spray.
  On top of crust place remaining Oreo cookies in a single layer. It is ok if there is space between the cookies.
  In a medium frying pan over medium high heat, melt butter. Add brown sugar and 2 tbsp of 35% cream and bring to a boil, mixing frequently. Allow to simmer lightly for 1 minute or until golden in colour. Remove from heat. Add bananas and toss to coat.
  Spread bananas over cookies in a single layer.
  Heat milk in a medium size pot over medium high heat until bubbles start to form.
  In another bowl, mix together sugar, cornstarch and egg yolks.
  Pour half of hot milk into bowl with sugar, cornstarch and egg yolks, mix well until smooth.
  Pour milk, sugar, cornstarch, and egg yolk mixture back into pot with the rest of the hot milk. Mix well until pudding thickens. Remove from heat. Add vanilla, mix well.
  Spread pudding mixture over bananas. Place in refrigerator overnight, or top with whipped cream and then place in refrigerator overnight.
  Beat 3/4 cup 35% whipping cream and 2 tsp sugar until soft peaks form. Spread whipped cream over pudding.
  Top with left over Oreo crumbs. If pie has already been in refrigerator overnight it is ready to serve, if not place in refrigerator overnight.
