1/1 Photo of Old-Fashioned Banana Cream Pie With Chocolate Pastry
MMMmmmm. Found this recipe in my local grocer's flyer. Love the banana and chocolate combo. The crust stuck in the pan a bit when I made it, thus the suggestion to lightly spray the pan before you start. Preparation does not include chilling time of about 2 hours.
