My mom is an excellent cook. She almost always made everything from scratch growing up. This is one of those recipes. Every time I eat a piece of this pie - it always brings good memories of family gatherings - since she always brought pies.

We all enjoyed this. Did not adjust this at all. This was so easy to prepare too. Though the previous reviewer stated that this is a basic recipe, and as much as My kids and myself like bananas, this hit the spot. Great fklavoring and taste. Made for recipe swap# 36.

I always like to make everything from scratch also,your mom and I are from the old school. I made this pie for the second time last night. It was good the first time but seemed to lack a little something, last night I added a tsp of vanilla and that just took it over the top for us. This is a very good basic recipe to play with as in coconut, or orange etc. Thank you so much for sharing. Lee
