Shari I only had a very small piece since I don't care for desserts much, I liked it. The pie was gone when I looked again, so you understand I was not the only one!! It was also very easy and quick to put together. I did one little thing different, I added some lemon zest to the last banana that goes on the top.

It was ok but it didn't really taste like banana cream pie. Also, my cream cheese seemed to "curdle" when I added the fresh lemon juice! Yikes!

Thanks so much, Shari2. This recipe was awesome! I loved the hint of lemon with the banana. No leftovers! ; )
