Food: Baking a Pie Today

A lazy holiday today has me a bit off-balance, in that I flew back from a short trip up north and now find myself doing a bit of tiding up around the house, and the need to bake something. Perhaps my Fall/Autumn radar is up. But while killing time at coffee shop bookstore yesterday waiting for my ride home from the airport, I ordered a cup of coffee and a pistachio light dessert – and when I saw this recipe, it reminded of how perfectly tasty that one from the coffee shop was – so I made it – mostly with coconut milk, oil and cream:


  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 10 full-size graham cracker sheets)
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 cups date caramel (below) or store-bought dulce de leche
  • 3-4 ripe but firm bananas, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream (see coconut cream variation in notes)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • chocolate shavings, for topping {more}


and I will be sitting in front of the television set, binge watching  The Detour? Have you see it? It is a pretty funny show and a great one to follow Schitt’s Creek – which I have finished watching and was experiencing withdrawals.
