I can't wait 6 weeks because the bananas are ready today.  Making MH's favorite, banana cream, with whipped cream, not meringue.

I forgot about this thread.

Have you had a German Chocolate Chess Pie?
 
Pie Diva made the famous Chocolate Chess Pie using the recipe from the Angus Barn this week. On day two, she decided to top it with German Chocolate Cake topping. This addition turned it into my new favorite pie.

As it turned out, Saturday was Pie Day.  I held off making the banana cream pie until yesterday because we had company for dinner.

And what you see there is my piece. Banana cream pie is my absolute, all-time, no-question-about-it favorite, and this one was magnificent.

Thank you!  I never made banana cream before.  I used the recipe in my Mother's (now mine) Betty Crocker Picture Cookbook for the filling......it was really good.  MH likes fresh whipped cream on top instead of meringue (as do I).

I want to make that German topped chocolate chess pie.  I'd better wait until Thanksgiving.

Great looking banana cream, Lisa! Whipped cream as a topping is the best. And oh boy-German chocolate chess pie. Gotta do that one!

The German chocolate chess pie does indeed look wonderful but I'll never make it.  I don't like chocolate and MH doesn't like nuts in anything.

Wow, that pie looks fabulous Betty Crocker Picture Cookbook, eh?  I have a Better Homes & Gardens illustrated cookbook of roughly the same vintage.  I'll check it to see what their recipe looks like.  Not that I can make the crust, you understand . . .

My Mother's cookbook is copyright 1950.  I made the crust like my Mother's.  Used the Betty Crocker recipe for the filling........then just slice some ripe bananas and whip heavy cream with powdered sugar.

If I can make the crust, you can too!  PM me and I'll tell you the secrets for perfect crust.

Talk about a pair of delicious looking pies! I bet they taste as good as their appearance, if not better. 
 
My Mom has a copy of that Betty Crocker cookbook, too. Her version is from the '70s. I've baked recipes from the book and they are all delicious! Definitely a mainstay in my cookbook collection & a "go to" resource.

Try a used bookstore or even Amazon for older versions of cookbooks like BC or BH&G. Both of these cookbooks have evolved over the years. The cookbooks copyrighted 1950 and 1970 are different, and the ones published today are very different. I am not saying which is better, that is subjective. The older versions are available, though, and a used bookstore is fun to visit. You can leave with a lot of books for not much money.

The most special thing about my Mother's Betty Crocker cookbook is the inscription.  "To Thee With All My Love"  "Mike".  (Thee is short for Thelma.)

Awwwww....that is nice. Is it also filled with handwritten info about the recipes--where she commented about how good or bad something was or something she changed about a recipe? I have a fairly large number of cookbooks, and it is fun to happen upon my own occasional handwritten comments.
I'm not crazy about banana cream pie, but yours looked good!

For some interesting (and inexpensive) cookbook choices, take a look at Hamilton Booksellers cookbook cataloge of bargain books. The cataloge is free..request it at their website, or just shop and order online. 70 pages of every sort of cooking activity you can think of... and all leass than $20, most in the $5-7 range. I buy a lot of books from these folks. They have most of the Sterns Books at reduced prices too,   OH- these are new , not used books.

And the dreaded evilBay as well; I've picked up a couple of '50s-era "barbecue" books there.  I have a 1958 copy (1st ed./4th printing) of the "Better Homes & Gardens Barbecue Book" and every so often I delve into it when I'm looking for a change of pace, but sadly Mrs. Chicken has decreed that we will not be serving Bowwow Bean Bake at our daughter's wedding.

Not if you're looking at 1958 color printing.
 
Based on the direction the last few posts have taken this might be a good time to excavate this very old thread.  Be warned, the "Regrettable Food" link will suck you in and steal hours from your life...and you'll be that much better because of it.

HEY- A WHOLE NEW "PI" DAY IS LOOMING ON THE HORIZON !!!
 
   I was reminded by my veterans organization that we are just two weeks from the observation of "NATIONAL "PI" DAY, Saturday March 14, 2015  (3.14.15) a term near and dear to the heart of those of us who served in the Cryptologic sections of the Armed Forces. A celebration will be held that Saturday at the National Cryptologic Museum at Ft Meade, Maryland.
