The weekends always go by so quickly. I savor the weekends with my family and friends. It is as carefree as it gets these days. Sunday, I spent most of my day constructing a chocolate banana cream pie. It takes more effort than I thought.
I started with making pie crust. Let it rest, then baked it.
Made the pastry cream. Let it cool.
Made the chocolate moose. Let it cool.
Made the whipped cream.
Made the chocolate curls. (they looked more like rough shavings oops).
Sliced the bananas and put it all together. See, step by step.
Last but not least, we devoured it.
All of it.
Crust. I used a different recipe but don't have it with me at the moment (sorry!) but dearest Martha has a great and similar recipe. Get it here.
Bake your crust and let it cool completely.
Slice 3 bananas up and place around the bottom of the pie crust.
Spread your pastry cream over the bananas.
Spread your chocolate moose over your pastry cream.
Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings (if you like!)
