Banana Cream Pie

I'm back with Tuesdays With Dorie! I'm so glad to be joining my fellow TWD bakers because I really missed baking up sweets every week. However my friends got me back on track last night when we came together for a dessert exchange. About 9 of us met up and brought a dessert (or two) to share. For the dessert exchange, I brought Dorie's Banana Cream Pie which was a hit!

Dorie's Banana Cream Pie had a wonderful flavor and texture... and it was much easier to make than I expected. I really liked the addition of cinnamon and nutmeg as it added a nice flavor to the custard. The sour cream topping also was nicely paired as it cut some of the sweetness and wasn't the typical whipped cream topping most associate with the pie. Be sure to check out Amy's blog, Sing for your Supper, to get the recipe... and take a peek at the other TWD bakers on how their banana cream pie turned out!

For the dessert exchange, we incorporated a deep fryer for anyone who wanted to fry up some sugary goodness. Joining my banana cream pie at the dessert exchange were...
