How to Make Delicious Banana Cream Pie

Step-by-Step

  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 350ยบ 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.
  8. Enjoy!
