Easy Banana Cream Pie

You know what's great about having kids who are old enough to read the directions, use the stove and not burn down the house? They can bake when you literally don't have the time!!! I put our three girls to work over the holidays because it was just too hard to keep my 10-month-old out of the cupboards and bake 10 pies.  I would like to add that dealing with an infant who is going through the tantrum phase, is far less stressful than refereeing the battles between my 9-year-old daughter and fourteen-year-old daughter. Sometimes, I'd like to stick them in the playpen for some time out!

If only I could get this kid to brush her teeth without being told she'd be perfect!

  • 1 pre-made 9-inch graham cracker crust (Serious time saver & there are often coupons for them)
  • 1 - 3.4 ounce box of instant vanilla pudding (serves 4)
  • 3 medium-sized bananas sliced (see above)
  • 1 - 8 ounce container of Cool-Whip
  • 2 cups of cold milk
  1. Use electric mixer to combine pudding mix and milk. Beat/whisk for 2 minutes. (Should be thick.)
  2. Layer sliced bananas onto bottom of graham cracker crust. Pour pudding mix on top. 
  3. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Last step: top with Cool Whip right before serving.
