For my 3rd Tuesdays With Dorie(TWD) I was very excited to try the banana cream pie.
I like to try out pie crust; I'm not always successful but I consider it a challenge to make a good one.
I didn't have any solid shortening in the house, so I used all butter. The flavor of the crust was good. I chilled the dough more than I usually would per Dorie's instructions, and I think it worked out well. I probably should have rolled the dough thinner than I did, but I like pie crust so no harm done.
My custard came together just fine. I read the P&Q ahead of time, and when my custard seemed to lump up, I knew not to worry and to just keep going.
I added nutmeg to the whipped cream. It matched nicely with the nutmeg in the custard.
Overall: Next time I would change the ratio of custard to bananas to have more bananas. I would also add more sugar to the custard.
Thanks to Amy from Sing for your Supper for this TWD pick!
