2 Tbsp

1 - 2 banana's, cool whip for decorating ( optional )
lemon juice for dipping banana's if decorating

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare a 9 inch pie crust or Graham cracker crust.



Graham Cracker Crust: 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (18 crackers)
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted



Heat oven to 350ยบ F. In a small mixing bowl, combine cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter. Press crumbs firmly against the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Bake the crust for 10 minutes. Cool.
2
In a medium sauce pan, combine sugar, corn starch, and salt.
3
Over medium heat, gradually whisk in milk. Stir constantly until filling becomes thick and reaches a boil. Boil filling for 1 minute.
4
Gradually add egg yolks. Continue to whisk filling mixture constantly while bringing to a boil again. Boil for 1 minute.
5
Remove filling mixture from heat, blend in butter and vanilla.
6
Place 1 layer of sliced bananas in the bottom of cooled pie crust.
7
Then, pour filling into pie crust. If desired, garnish with additional bananas and whipped topping.

Keep chilled until ready to serve.


Other ideas I have used with this pie. Drizzle a layer chocolate ganache on crust before layer of banana's. I have also drizzled chocolate ice cream topping on the top of the pie, over the banana's and whipped topping.
