TwD- Banana Cream Pie

This week's recipe was chosen for us by: 

I have to say that I had been waiting for this recipe for 
a VERY long time. I know I could have made it before
but... I don't know why I never did.

The recipe itself is very simple and consists of pretty
much basic ingredients. If you have not tried this...
TODAY is the day! 

I only have one question.. maybe its a dumb question..
but just like they would tell me in high school "the only
dumb question is the one NOT asked"... so I'll believe
it's true and ask.
Why is it called banana cream pie... if the cream doesn't
even taste like banana? Don't get me wrong.. I LOVED 
the pie... but I guess I was hoping for something with 
more banana flavor. Just wondering....

Back to the great pie... I was unable to get a good 
photograph of the delicious pie, simply because I was 
too lazy to make the pie crust that the recipe called for.
I know.. I know.. I could have bought it.. BUT... I also
love the way banana pudding tastes with vanilla wafers
so I decided to make a wafer crust..yay! Well... maybe
I just didn't let the poor pie rest enough... or at all!
As soon as I finished assembling it I started taking pics.
So when I decided that it was time to cut the slice to 
photograph it...my slice just kinda.. disintegrated.. or 
something.. the point is that I just couldn't manage to 
get it all in one piece.. especially with the crumbly crust.
I'm guessing that if I had refrigerated it I would have had
no problem but I was trying to get the last rays of sun
for my photographs. 
I really don't think I even need a good picture for this 
pie though... for those who made it...you know that 
no matter what it looks like, it tastes incredible...
right? right? .. Yeah.. maybe I'm just trying to make 
myself feel better.. 

Like I said... if you haven't made this pie... GO NOW!!!
