Peanut Butter Banana Pie

This pie is a little different with the peanut butter and banana's and I added chocolate!

I saw a version of this pie on Food Network and thought it sounded good but I couldn't find a copy of the recipe on Food Network so I watched the video and wrote down the ingredients and directions. I didn't have the exact amounts to anything so I came up with my own version. I gave it some short cuts, added some things and took away some.

I get all my flavoring except the vanilla from lorann oils.
Here it the link: lorannoils.com

You might also try ebay and other sites to get them cheaper.

Hope you like it!

1/2 c
sugar
1/8 tsp
salt
1 c
milk
1 c
heavy cream
2 large
egg yolks, reserve whites
1 tsp

1/8 tsp

PEANUT BUTTER TOPPING

8 oz

1/8 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Crust:
Preheat oven 350 degrees,
Put about 40 vanilla wafers into food processer or hand crush. Combine vanilla wafer crumbs, sugar and softened butter, mix well. Press into 9 inch pie plate. Brush with egg white. Put in oven and bake 10 minute. Watch closely so it doesn't burn! Cool completely before you add the bananas and custard. You can buy vanilla wafer crust at the grocery store but I think this is better.
2
Slice banana's and put in 1/4 cup orange juice, this will prevent them from browning and add a little zip! Drain bananas, place on the bottom of pie crust.
3
Custard:
Add cornstarch, sugar, salt, both milks, egg yolks, vanilla and banana flavorings. You must stir constantly this while adding ingredients until well blended and smooth before putting on the heat. Turn on heat and keep stiring until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat and pour on top of bananas in pie crust.
4
Peanut Butter Topping:
Mix with mixer cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth, add 1/4 cup peanut butter, mix well. At this point taste the mixture to see if you like the strength of the peanut butter, and add more if you want. I added another 1/4 cup (1/2 cup total) which I really liked. Blend additional peanut butter until smooth and creamy. Take 8oz container of Cool Whip and 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, fold into peanut butter mixture. Do not over stir.
5
Garnish (optional)
Drizzle with caramel sauce. Top with crushed peanuts and/or mini chocolote chips.
6
Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
