One of the memories I have as a child is my moms Banana Cream Pie. I loved it but have never been a huge banana eater. I just loved the creaminess of the banana cream and banana wafers. There’s a place here in Las Vegas called Lucille’s BBQ. It’s amazing to the 10th degree! I live no where near it but will make the drive because it’s so yummy. You know something is THAT good when you will waste gas just to get that taste…you know?
On the days when my cowboy thinks I’ve lost my mind and I need to keep my bum home, I make this. And truthfully, this is so good…I no longer need to go there unless I just want to not cook.
Just to give you an idea of how much you can save making this dish at home vs. going out to eat. Here’s a break down of items purchased from a grovery store without coupons (of course this would never happen…lol. So just imagine what this amount would be with coupons and your savings).
Total = $9.39. That’s approx. $1.17 per person when you are making 8 mini ramekins. Each Ramekin holds .5 cup/4 ounces.

- 1/2 pint Whipping Cream

- Banana Cream – follow directions on box for stove top, let slightly cool but not too much because you want it to blend nicely
- After Whipping cream and Banana cream are finished and cooled. Fold in two ingredients together. Layer each ramekins with 4 wafers. Pour mixture on top and add additional wafers on top and in middle. Top with your favorite topping. Whip cream, berries, crumbs…
