Did you know that March 2 is National Banana Cream Pie Day? Why not celebrate a day that encourages you to indulge in this rich dessert? We can’t think of any reason not to, so here are a few places in the Dallas area that will help you celebrate your love for this classic pie with banana-flavored desserts and much more.
The Diner of Dallas
This fun eatery has been a local favorite for 25 years. It’s most famous for its cornbread and sweet tea, but don’t forget its amazing pies, as well. Of course, they carry all the classic fruit pies like apple and cherry, your favorite meringues like lemon and chocolate, and the indulgent creams like coconut and yes, banana! If you are craving something a little “outside the pie crust,” try their banana pudding or fried bananas.
This is the home of the “not so humble pie,” located in nearby Garland. Here, you can order pie by the slice, or call ahead and order a whole one. With over 50 options, they boast one of the most extensive pie menus in the region. Enjoy some of their original creations like Strawberry Buttermilk and S’More Than Meets the Eye, stick to the classics like Texas Pecan or Apple Crumble, and of course, don’t miss their rich, indulgent Banana Cream.
Bread Winners Bakery & Bistro
This eatery is a favorite with locals, thanks to its delicious menu that features mouth-watering entrees as well as treats that will satisfy even the pickiest of sweet tooths. Drop by for some shrimp linguine or buttermilk pan-fried chicken breast, and grab a dessert to go. They have everything from Italian Cream Cakes to Chocolate Chunk Walnut Cookies, and of course, they have Banana Cream Pie.
If you don’t want to go out to celebrate, try making your own banana cream pie with this recipe from Taste of Home. Don’t forget to check out the Olympus at Ross blog for more great dining and cooking recommendations around the Dallas area.
