How to Make Delicious Banana Cream Pie
- 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.
- Gradually add egg yolks. Continue to whisk filling mixture constantly while bringing to a boil again. Boil for 1 minute.
- 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.
