It is less than a month till Valentine's Day, so I decided to do a test run of the dessert. I want something creamy, rich in flavor, easy to make, yet something that will stay on our taste buds memory for a long time! Cream pie was the first thing that popped in my mind. Store bought pie crust is already a shortcut. Than I can go two ways: either cook the pastry cream or just make store bought pudding pie filling. And there are so many decadent flavors to choose from.
For the test run I decided to cook vanilla and chocolate pastry cream and for the fruit, bananas and peaches. But for the real deal I will go with strawberry and coconut pastry cream; as for the fruit, bananas inside and fresh strawberries for decoration. Yea, the plan sounds perfect, will let you know how it went.
Let's get cooking!
