I made this for the first time today., because I had some bananas about to go bad. I was able to make this pie from things I had in my pantry already. I didn't have any whipping cream (or any money to buy any!:) so I used the egg whites left over from the ingredients and added some powdered sugar and made a meringue to go on top. This pie is beautiful and delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
This was our desert today. Excellent pie and it goes together quickly. I haven't made a banana cream pie (or tasted one) in many years. We really enjoyed it. Today we had it with whipped topping and a pastry crust. I'd like to try it in a chocolate cookie crust too. The basic cream filling (first 6 ingredients) looks like an easy base for building most any cream pie--vanilla, coconut, chocolate, etc. Thanks.
This IS the best banana cream pie!! It turned out perfect, and it was really easy!
