Banana Cream Pie Bites


Banana Cream Pie Bites

I am always thrilled when I discover a new gluten free dessert that I can make for my son Kell who has celiacs disease! I recently purchased some Pillsbury gluten free pie crust dough and had been trying to figure out what I could do with it. When I saw an idea for Banana Cream Pie Bites on Pinterest, I had my answer. This isn’t really a “recipe” as much as it is a “method.” But I have a few tips and tricks to share that I think will make it much easier for those of you who want to try it. Of course you don’t need to use gluten free pie crust for this. Feel free to use any type of pie crust you want, store-bought or homemade.

Banana Cream Pie Bites

All you need is pie crust dough, banana cream pudding, whipped cream, bananas, and a mini muffin pan.

First, make small balls out of the pie crust dough to form your micro mini pies.

Press each dough ball into the muffin cups, forming a cup of sorts. I used a tablespoon to help me in this process. Just make sure you spray the back of the spoon with cooking spray first so it will slip out without sticking. Once you have all of the dough cups formed, bake them according to package (or recipe) instructions. While the mini crusts are baking, make your banana cream pudding and your whipped cream.

To make it easier to fill the crusts, I filled an inexpensive condiment bottle I purchased at the dollar store with the pudding. Once the crusts were baked and cooled, I quickly filled each one with this easy method.

After the pudding was set up in the crust cups, I placed one piece of sliced banana on top of each one.

The last step is to top them with whipped cream. Once again I made it easier on myself by placing a cake decorating tip into the clipped corner of a plastic bag and then filling the bag with the whipped cream.

Using your cream-filled bag, quickly pipe a good amount of the creamy goodness on top of each slice of banana.

Now aren’t those just about the easiest and most adorable little banana cream pies you’ve ever seen?

Of course if you’re not a huge banana fan, you can eliminate the banana slices and fill the crust cups with lemon pudding or whatever pudding that floats your boat. The possibilities are practically endless.

  • I’m really loinvg the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog audience have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

  • Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a sliimar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

  • These look like a very good size. Did you do anything to the banana to prevent browning?
    At our house the Mr. would ask where’s the chocolate. Hershey makes a few different types of GF baking chips; that can become MYO Magic Shell by adding coconut oil.
    With summer coming I can see forgoing the pudding and just filling these pie cups with whipped cream and chopped fresh fruit or whole berries–with a little shaved chocolate of course.
    Thanks for the idea and putting the process at our finger tips.

  • What a great idea! Thank Jillee! Nice way to make small servings and it looks good too!

    I will have to look for that container of Pillsbury dough when I go to the store again.

    I can’t wait to make these.

  • Hey Jillee,
    Thanks for all the great tips and recipes! This one looks like a keeper. As a person who shares the same disease as your son, I would just like to make one teeny tiny suggestions—the disease is celiac disease, not celiacs. Just a pet peeve of mine–don’t want to be critical! ;-)

  • What a great idea Jillie. Since I am the designated baker in our family for all gatherings, this is definitely something I will try next time, and will probably make several different kinds pf flavors to please everyone’s palette. Thanks so much for posting.
