Cooking Without Photos – Banana Blueberry Pie

This week we mosey on down to Abilene, Texas. I‘ve never been to Texas. I do believe I bought this week’s cookbook at an estate sale in Conway🤔🤔

Anywho, here are some facts about Abilene that you may not have known.

  1. A cattle rancher by the name of Clairborne W. Merchant named Abilene, TX after Abilene, Kansas which was once a huge cattle town.
  2. Abilene won the county seat in 1883 because the Texas and Pacific railroad had just laid track down the middle of their town.
  3. Taco Bueno was started in Abilene in 1967 and I do believe the whole south thanks you😘😘😘

This week I chose the very tiny cookbook put out by The Vintage Tea Room that was once located in Abilene. I could not find any information about the business. I can only assume it is no longer in service.

Out of their cookbook called, “Favorite Recipes From The Vintage Tea Room”, I chose Blueberry Banana Pie to make.

Couple of things:
The ingredient list for this is kinda confusing. you’ll need the following for two pies:

2 crusts
2 cups sugar
2 8oz package cream cheese
2 bananas
1 can blueberry pie filling
1 small tub cool whip

Also, it says “sugar” and I used “sugar”. I could see though that it would be better with powdered sugar. I got no complaints though. Very much a Spring or Summer pie. Enjoy!!!
