Did anyone make" Banana Cream Pie in Alissas book p513? Would you report how it turned out?
Sorry it's on my list, but I did make the bluberry pie on Friday and it was awesome ! It's my breakfast and lat enight snack all weekend.
I have made a lot of desserts from Alissa's book and everyone one came out great ! Let us know if you made it ! I am going to go check the book now to see if I have all the ingredients !

This was one of the first things I made when I got Alissa's book.
The taste was excellent but I found that the filling was too runny so when I made it the second time, I added some coconut oil. This firmed it up and made it easy to cut a slice with a knife whereas before the filling slopped out when I served a slice on a plate.
I got the coconut oil tip from one of the threads here, I think.
I 'm making this after lunch, how much coconut oil did you add ?

I made the Blueberry Pie Friday! for the 20th time. and now I will make the Banana one. Thanks for the coconut oil tip.
I have blueberry pie question. Is it supposed to firm up completely or be a little runny ? I used frozen bluberries.

I made the blueberry pie today and used frozens. Mine wasn't runny at all. How did yours work out?

i'm planning on making the banana creame pie this week, actually.. but i was just wondering the difference between dried and shredded coconut. i have some coconut flakes-- are they considered "dried coconut"?? i also just bought a fresh baby thai coconut-- does "shredded coconut" refer to pieces of fresh coconut meat?? :confused:

MFB I use the meat of a young coconut and it firms up in the fridge. I use a container of fresh blueberries in the crust and then use the frozen blueberries for the filling. Joz
hmmm don't know about the coconut flakes. I buy my coconut right here from Alissa's store, I know it's truly raw.
and I'm wondering what I did wrong with my Bberry pie? It was firm in the midle but runny on top, like the top did not set ?? I wonder if I made it to thick ?

MFB e-mail me for recipe? mine comes out nice and thick and sliceable. Joz

mbf - I used about 5 teaspoons of coconut oil. A bit more would have made it really firm but I was thinking about the fat content so didn't want to overdo it.
