Fluffy Banana Cream Pie Recipe
Banana Cream Pie Recipe: Piled high with fresh ripe bananas and creamy vanilla filling, then topped with whipped cream and toasted coconut.
Let’s talk about glorious Banana Cream Pie… When I think of Easter brunch or any holiday brunch, I think of a table decorated with spring flowers and Easter eggs, lined with hearty salads, rolls, glazed ham, and desserts galore.
Dishes that aren’t necessarily fancy, but are inviting and abundant. Dishes your grandmas might make.
Most classic brunch buffet items are make-ahead. Grandma knew she’d be too busy Easter morning, going to church in her Easter bonnet and hiding eggs in the tall grass, to do a lot of cooking. So she planned several days in advance with pasta salads and casseroles.

14 graham crackers about 7 ounces
