Banana Cream Pie
Well I guess it is pie week here. More old favorites: Banana!
More childhood memories. My dear Mom use to make this when I was a kid. I think Papa could eat a whole one all by himself. She'd layer lots of sliced bananas, pudding and a pile of whipped cream. Some how in the back of my mind I have it as maybe it was a childhood favorite of his, but then so was butter.
then there was the whipped cream fight at Thanksgiving... but that's a a whole different story.
9 inch pie shell, baked
3 cups whole milk
3/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Have baked 9-inch pie shell ready.
2 In a large saucepan, scald the milk.
3 In another saucepan, combine the sugar, flour and salt; gradually stir in the scalded milk.
4 Over medium heat, stirring constantly, cook until thickened.
5 Cover and, stirring occasionally, cook for two minutes longer.
6 In a small bowl, have the 3 egg yolks, slightly beaten, ready; stir a small amount of the hot mixture into beaten yolks; when thoroughly combined, stir yolks into hot mixture.
7 Cook for one minute longer, stirring constantly.
8 Remove from heat and blend in the butter and vanilla.
9 Let sit until lukewarm.
10 When ready to pour, slice bananas and scatter in pie shell; pour warm mixture over bananas.
11 Top with whipped cream
