Banana Cream Pie with a Peanut Butter/Cornflake Crust 
Search Request from Visitors to Old Recipe Detective Blog


The Request: "In the 1960's my mother cut out a recipe for a banana cream pie with a peanut butter/cornflake crust. It was very delicious and rich. I think she cut it from a magazine and she thinks it was from a box of corn flakes. My whole family would love to have this recipe. Does anyone have it?"

From Peter: I am a big fan of the back of the box recipes from childhood. I am pretty sure this is a combination of the following 2 recipes: The crust is from the Kellogg's "Tin roof pie" There were no Honey nut corn flakes in the 1960's so just substitute good o'le regular cornflakes. The banana cream filling is from a Keebler's pie crust recipe. However "Keebler" is a Kellogg's company. So if a Kellogg's corn flake box had a banana pie recipe there is a good chance it's this one. Name brand companies often bring back old published recipes from years ago with a little spin on them to promote new flavor of product. PJP from NYC

1/4 c. corn syrup
2 c. Kellogg's Honey and Nut Corn Flakes
1 qt. vanilla ice cream, softened

Stir together peanut butter and corn syrup in medium bowl. Add cereal, stirring until well coated. Press into 9-inch pie pan. Chill.  Scoop softened ice cream into crust; freeze until firm. Remove from freezer 10 minutes before serving. Top with syrup and peanuts.
