Help! Oven is well full for Christmas dinner and I've neglected to make dessert...

I was planning on banana cream pie, but I don't have a shell baked and that's likely problematic at this point..

What to do....

    Make the pudding, layer it in individual glasses or pretty bowl with sliced bananas, and crumble graham cracker or gingersnap crumbs toasted in brown butter over the top. (Or something for a bit of crunch - peanuts, chocolate covered pretzels, whatever).

      Crushed graham cracker "crust"? Microwave cooking of this is described here http://www.food.com/recipe/graham-cracker-crust-microwave-96877
      Banana Cream pudding topped with vanilla wafers or crushed graham crackers?
      Microwave cooked crust (it won't be brown, but it will be cooked).http://www.cooks.com/recipe/ph1rf66c/...

        Thanks!! I've got graham crackers, just checked, so I'll just make the pie crust with that and voila.
