We had a birthday at our house and the one thing that was requested was Banana Cream Pie. It really is one of our family’s favorite foods. I love that it is so easy to make. Here is the recipe:
Combine these ingredients in a saucepan: 2/3 c. sugar 1/3 c. cornstarch 1/2 tsp. salt[caption id="attachment_2052" align="aligncenter" width="300"] cooking mixture[/caption]
Gradually add 2 cups powdered milk and 3 egg yolks.
Heat until it boils, stirring constantly. When it thickens, remove from heat. Add butter powder equivalent to ¼ c. butter and 1 tsp. vanilla and half of a sliced banana. Although I didn’t do it, you could use freeze dried bananas in this recipe.[caption id="attachment_2053" align="aligncenter" width="225"] adding bananas to mix[/caption]
Put graham cracker or vanilla wafer crumbs in the bottom of a baked pie crust. This will keep your crust from getting soggy. Slice 1 banana onto crumbs. Pour mixture into shell.[caption id="attachment_2054" align="alignleft" width="150"] add graham crackers to crust[/caption] [caption id="attachment_2055" align="alignleft" width="150"] bananas on the crust[/caption] [caption id="attachment_2056" align="alignleft" width="150"] pour mixture into shell[/caption]

Refrigerate until cooled then add whipped topping. Enjoy!!
