This might be my favorite pie. Ever. It’s not only super simple, it’s just soooooooo delicious as well. My grandmother strikes again with another fab recipe. What would I do without my Grandmother? (Who by the way, doesn’t think she’s a cook…she’s wrong.) Summer can’t end without you trying this pie. Trust me.
1 prepared pie crust, baked and ready to go (I just use a Pillsbury crust and pop it into the oven)
1 (3 oz) cream cheese
the juice of 1 lemon
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 large Cool Whip, thawed a bit
2 bananas, sliced
Sliced strawberries to top (probably 10 or so)
In a medium sized bowl, combine cream cheese, lemon juice and sugar with a wooden spoon. Fold in Cool Whip. Lay sliced bananas across the bottom of your cooked (and fully cooled) pie shell. Top banana slices with your Cool Whip mixture. Lay sliced strawberries across the top. Refrigerate at least 12 hours (if not, your sugar won’t dissolve in your pie and it will be grainy tasting). Slice and serve.
This is the perfect accompaniment to a pool party. Or any party. Or a lazy afternoon. This pie is good for breakfast. It’s always good.
