Admittedly, cream pies are the stuff of slapstick comedy and road trip restaurants. But they're also one of our favorite winter desserts because most are made without any out of season ingredients. The base is a custard or pudding—think banana, coconut, or chocolate—that's topped with a big mound of fluffy whipped cream (homemade, please).
We've rounded up 10 of our favorite recipes, from classics like Boston Cream Pie to upscale takes like Bourbon and Brittle Banana Cream Pie. Take a look through the slideshow to see 10 great cream pies, no frozen fruit required.
