How To Make delicious banana cream pie

  • 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 350º 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.
