Banana Cream Pie



My late Father-in-law loved banana cream pie above ALL other desserts. When he became diabetic, I started making them from scratch for him so I could use sugar substitute. I'll post it with the regular sugar, then if you need to use a substitute, follow the conversion directions with whichever one you like to use. I have made this with sweetNlow, equal, stevia, and splenda, so they all work well.
