No other dessert harkens us back to childhood 
and all those sweet memories, as does a pie. 
It can be served simple and unadorned, or piled high with fruit and cream.....
we all love them!

Three Bananas
Into a

Cooled Crust

The Banana Cream Pie is so much a southern favorite,
 that you are probably standing at the head of the line to get your slice.....
Y'all enjoy!

Vanilla Banana Cream Pie
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 t. salt
2 cups whole milk
3 slightly beaten egg yolks
2 T. butter
1 t. vanilla
1 (9-inch) baked and cooled pastry shell
3 fresh bananas
Whipping cream
Shaved unsweetened chocolate

In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, flour and salt. Gradually stir in the milk. Cook and stir over medium heat, stirring constantly until bubbly. Cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. 
Stir a small amount of the custard into the egg yolks. This serves to temper the yolks. Return this mixture into the hot custard and continue to cook over medium heat for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and add in butter and vanilla. Pour into the cooled pie shell over 3 sliced bananas. I sprinkle the bananas with a spritz of lemon juice to keep from browning. Top with whipped cream and shaved chocolate!
