KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend!! We are still busy over here with getting settled in. I know Ken and I will be utterly happy when we don't have to do anything extra to do...just a normal day-to-day routine plus our dates on the weekends. We will at least be on more of a schedule this coming week, as our kiddos start at their new school! And I've managed to get on a bit of a schedule with work, with just a few extra things on my to-do. I hope you all have a good weekend and enjoy some of my favorite links from the week. Grab a cup of coffee and sit back and relax. Image via Chevrons & Eclairs.

No-Bake Banana Cream Pie in A Jar


Making a homemade pie crust is time consuming, and sometimes I just don't feel like going to the trouble. My no-bake banana cream pie in a jar is an easy last-minute holiday dessert. The graham cracker crumbs that replace the traditional crust in this dessert gives it holiday flavor, and making the pie in single-serving jars makes it easier to serve a crowd.

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs (approx. 15 graham crackers)

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Make the banana pudding first so it can chill in the fridge while you prep the rest of the ingredients.

2. If you're making homemade whipped cream, go ahead and make that too so it can also chill and set up.

3. Slice the bananas and set aside.

4. Use food processor to crumb the graham crackers. (You can also place them in a sealed plastic bag and beat the crap out of them with a rolling pin. This is my preferred method of choice!) Set aside.

5. Using a spoon, layer in each jar the graham cracker crumbs, then a layer of banana slices, then the pudding, then the whipped cream. Repeat layers one more time and garnish top with a few graham cracker crumbs. Cover with lids and refrigerate until ready to serve. You can prep the ingredients several days in advance and assemble the dessert the night before or day of. Enjoy!

  4. Yum! We love banana cream pie and it hadn't occurred to me to do it this way. I love using jars because it's easy to create individual portions…otherwise we have a tendency to eat pie right out of the baking dish until half of it's gone. Easy to make this recipe low fat, too. Def stealing this one!
