    Karen67's Note:

    My grandmother was a wonderful cook, made great pies, and this was my favorite. She always used a homemade pie crust and served it with a dollop of Cool Whip or whipped cream on top. She didn't give me any idea how many bananas to I guessed. She would also use the same custard, making a half batch, for the filling in cream puffs.

      Wonderful recipe! It was very easy to follow. I used 2% milk and it worked fine. I also used a regular pie dish not deep dish and I just got extra custard which still fit in the pie. I will be making this recipe again thanks for sharing!
