My mom has been making this for as long as I can remember. We thought that we lost the recipe but as she was going through her recipe drawer - there is was! We were so happy because mom turned 86 this year and if we had lost it, I know we would never have made it again. Hope you enjoy it like our family does!
Boil over low fire (after you have mixed all ingredients above except vanilla). Stirring constantly until it thickens.
Remove from range and add drop of yellow food color and vanilla.
Pour over sliced bananas in precooked pie shell while mixture is still hot. You will need enough bananas to slice a couple of layers into the pie shells before you add the glaze. You can also sub bananas with other fruit - we just always used bananas!
After cooling, top with whipped cream that is sweetened.
