Banana Lemon Pie
The ultimate dessert, banana lemon pie will make your mouth water each and every time you think about it. For fruit lovers, this might tickle your fancy.
Using your food processor, work on three cups of walnuts. When the walnuts are broken down into bite-sized bits (or even smaller), add two cups of raisins and you are done with your crust. Press the mixture in a nine-inch plate.
Grate a desired amount of lemon zest on top of the crust.
Meanwhile, prepare just enough lemon juice to coat five medium-sized sliced bananas. After the bananas are coated, arrange the bananas onto the crust. Freeze your banana lemon pie if desired.
