Another pie option for the Holidays! The original recipe was Paula Deen’s found at FoodNetwork.com. Of course I tweaked it a little bit:
-1 (8 ounce) package Cream Cheese
-1 (15 ounce) container Ricotta Cheese
-1/2 cup of Honeyville’s Sugar
-1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
-3/4 cup Cocoa Powder
-1 Graham Cracker Pie Crust
-Whipped Cream (for the topping)-some of the Retail Stores sell Gossner’s Whip Cream and this would be the PERFECT topping!
In a mixer, or with your hand mixer (I used my hand mixer, but next time I will use my Bosch…I think a mixer would have been a lot easier) combine re-hydrated banana’s, cream cheese, ricotta cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Mix well.
Slowly beat in cocoa powder to avoid dry pockets
Pour into pie crust and refrigerate for at least 2 hours
Top with whipped cream and banana chips
Honest Opinion: It was good. I am not a cream cheese fan or a pie fan….so I can’t say I thought it was delicious, but I had several bites and my child really liked it. I am having others try it today, so we will see what they say. It looks delicious though; who wouldn’t like chocolate, banana’s and whip cream? I am just crazy!
