International Banana Day / 5 Step Banana Cream Pie

Nothing says skilled in the kitchen like being able to pull off a fancy plated dessert that tastes as wonderfully fresh and amazing as it looks. The problem is that with desserts, they often take so long to make that no one really has the time to pull them off before a big gathering. All to often people are forced to settle for store bought creations that fail in comparison to what they could do at home simply because of time restraints.
Today is International Banana Day (I am truly curious if they are celebrating this day in other Nations to be honest.)
School has started back up, the weather is quickly changing and that only means one thing; some huge eating holidays are right around the corner. This year don’t stress having to attend multiple family functions and what you should bring with you. After you whip up this simple 5 ingredient / 5 step recipe for some amazing Banana Cream Pie, you will be a sure fire hit everywhere you go (and do yourself a favor and don’t let on that it was as easy as it was, keep some mystery about yourself and your skills.
Remember to let it set overnight in the fridge and serve it cold, covered in fresh whipped cream.
1 ¼ cups graham cracker crumbs
3 TBS sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 (4 serving size) package vanilla pudding mix, prepared
