If you are looking for a simple, yet delicious dessert, this Easy Banana Cream Pie Recipe is for you! It contains shortbread cookies that act as the crust of the pie making it a no baking required dessert! I love it and I bet you will too.


– 1 package or Lorna Doone Shortbread cookies or Pepperidge Farm Chessman Shortbread cookies
– 2 small packets of Jell-O Instant Banana Cream Pudding
– 4 Bananas
– 1 12 oz container of frozen whipped topping (thawed)
– cold milk  (use the amount of milk as per instructions on your pudding packet)

I love preparing this dessert in this type of glass bowl because it almost always creates the “wow” factor when others see it!  It’s perfect for bbq parties too!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 0 minutes

Yield: 8 Servings

Instructions for Easy Banana Cream Pie:
Start by making the instant banana cream pudding according to the instructions on the package. Stir completely and wait for it to set. Once it has set I folded in about 1/2 of the whipped cream to the pudding mixture for a light and fluffy texture.

Next, add the first layer of shortbread cookies at the bottom of your bowl or pan (whichever you prefer). The next layer will be sliced bananas. Add a layer of the Banana Cream pudding mixture you prepared earlier. Now add a layer of whipped cream. Repeat these layers until you run out of room or ingredients. Top with the remaining a dollop of whipped cream and bananas on the top. Voila! That’s it!

    The idea of using Lorna Dunes is really appealing. The only thing I would disagree with in making this according to the recipe, is the use of Banana Cream pudding or anything with artificial banana flavor. My mom taught me long ago that using a plain vanilla pudding, whether from scratch, instant or cooked from a box, is far better than using a banana flavored pudding, which often has a definite fake and overwhelming banana flavor. The bananas do lend a beautiful light banana flavor to the vanilla pudding, and having tried both, my preference would be to chuck the artificial tasting product. Bottom line, I don’t think God ever meant for us to duplicate the flavor of a banana.

    This looks great. But my favorite part is the bake time of zero minutes! So simple! Thank you for linking at the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you again next week.

    I’m guessing the ingredient list should say 4 cups of cold milk since you say
    to use 2 cups with each package of pudding mix. Looks like a great recipe though.

      Yes! I just updated the recipe. Use the amount of milk that is stated on your instant pudding package. Sorry about the confusion. I hope you enjoy this recipe. It’s one of our favorites!
