banana cream pie

So there's this little dessert shop in New York - Magnolia Bakery. Maybe you've heard of it?!

People go on and on about their cupcakes. But, I'll let you in on a little secret. The banana cream pie is where it's at.

They mix in fluffy whipped cream with their banana pudding so every bite is light and creamy and decadent. It's that sort of dessert where you have to close your eyes and enjoy every. single. bite.

We made a slight variation on the traditional recipe. Instead of vanilla wafer cookies, we used a salted chocolate cookie crust. The crust really complements the sweetness of the pudding.

The result was just as good as Magnolia's. It's helping me get through my winter blues - when will the snow and rain stop?

We used this recipe from the Momofuku cookbook - another dessert shop I adore in NYC. Try their corn cookies. Trust me.
