Homemade Banana Cream Pie is the BEST!





During my childhood days we used to play a game called pies. We all picked a pie we like and they you have to guess what kind we were.




I still remember always being Banana Cream Pie. I guess it was too common, as I always lost and they guessed mine first everytime.




I was only 7 years old then. I still remember how much fun though we had.




Still after all these years, this old fashioned banana cream pie is my favorite.




However, I have to have mine all started with fresh ingredients and from scratch. No instant pudding here!




If there is a second favorite pie in my desserts I love, it's red raspberry. Then I also love coconut cream pie too!

Old Fashioned Banana Cream Pie

3/4 cup sugar ........
3 cups whole milk
1/4 cup cornstarch
5 egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon butter
4 peeled and sliced banana's
1 (9-inch) baked pie shell recipe below






Directions:In a nonstick 1-quart saucepan, combine 3/4 cup sugar, 1 cup milk. Scald mixture. In a small mixing bowl, whisk the remaining 2 cups milk and cornstarch together to make a slurry. Whisk egg yolks with salt in medium bowl. Temper yolks by adding 1/2 cup scaled milk mixture to yolks and whisk well. Add yolk mixture and put back into milk mixture and whisk vigorously over medium heat until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat , add vanilla, and butter. Whisk until uniformly incorporated. Add sliced banana's to pie shell. Pour 1 cup of whipped cream to the the filling folding gently, pour into the prepared pie shell over banana's. Cover the pie with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. Chill the pie completely, about 2 hours. Cover pie with whipped cream or non dairy whipped topping.



Pie shell:
2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup solid vegetable shortening
6 to 7 tablespoons ice cold water

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Mix well. Add the shortening and mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the water and let sit 1 minute. Either using a fork or your hands, carefully press the mixture together to form a soft ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and place it on a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter and 1/4-inch thick. Gently fold the circle of dough in half and then in half again so that you can lift it without tearing it, and unfold into a 9-inch by 2-inch deep-dish pie pan. Crimp the edges and chill again for 30 minutes before baking. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bake pie shell until golden, about 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely before using.
