Perhaps you are not aware that there is a MoonPie over Mobile event on New Year's Eve here in Alabama? Well, there totally is! A big MoonPie thing descends from a building in downtown Mobile during the count down to midnight. We watch it on TV. It's hilarious.
This year I decided to create a special New Year's Eve treat for the occasion, and so the Banana Cream MoonPie Pie was born!
Well, it doesn't have a crust so it probably isn't technically a pie. But it does have cream pie filling!
To make a Banana Cream MoonPie Pie you need:
1 (3.4 oz) box of instant banana cream pudding & pie filling (not the kind that requires cooking on the stove, the instant kind that you mix with cold milk)
2 cups of cold milk
6 oz plain non-fat Greek yogurt
a pie plate, a medium sized bowl, a whisk, and a sharp knife.
First, empty the instant banana cream pudding mix into the bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk.
Next, add the yogurt a little at a time, whisking it briskly until it is completely mixed in and smooth. Set the pudding mix aside to thicken for 5 minutes.
While the pudding is thickening, unwrap your MoonPies and cut each one into six wedges.
When your pudding is ready, pour half of it into the pie plate. Arrange half of the MoonPie wedges throughout the mixture.
Top with the remaining pudding, then arrange the rest of the MoonPie pieces on top. Cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving (the pudding/pie filing mixture will continue to set as it chills).
Happy New Years!
