I’ll be blunt. Had this recipe not been part of Project Pastry Queen, I wouldn’t have posted it. But we post the good, bad, and the ugly! Of the ~50 recipes I’ve made from the book, this is only the second one that just wasn’t my thing. I didn’t dig the texture of the filling or the lack of sweetness. It was definitely my brother and his girlfriend’s thing. (Of course, their biggest complaint about our usual pecan pie is that it’s too sweet. )
I did, however, dig the recipe for pie crust. Since making it with the banana cream pie, it has become my new go-to pie crust. It’s all kinds of flaky! I served the pie with whipped cream and strawberry sauce.

Next week, it’s my turn to host Project Pastry Queen and, surprise! I’ve picked a Mexican-ish dish: Gulf Coast Shrimp Quesadillas.
