    Simply Chris's Note:

    This is a really great pie that has become a Thanksgiving regular. Recipe is from Cooking Light Nov 1998. I am lazy so I use a purchased pie crust and then just make the fillings. Time does not include 4 hours chill time.

      This pie was really good! I didn't bother to use anything fat-free since it wouldn't have saved me many calories, but this was still a nice lighter version of banana cream pie regardless. We really enjoyed this, thanks for posting!

      This pie is fantastic - it looks so professional and is really not that hard to make. I use fat-free milk and light cream cheese (not fat-free) and freshly made whipped cream. I always get rave reviews after the first bite from my guests. I also make the pastry crust that was in the original 1998 Cooking Light recipe and it is wonderful - tender and flaky.
