    Lennie's Note:

    Before Cool Whip and instant pudding, this was how a cream pie was made. If you leave out the bananas, you have vanilla cream pie. If you add 1 cup shredded coconut to milk as it's being heated, you have coconut cream pie.

      At the advice of my mom, I decided to make this for my Survivor group last night. It was a hit. I found it very easy to make. My only problem was that I didn't make enough. I thought one pie would be sufficient for 6 people, but as most everyone wanted seconds I should have made two. Thanks for sharing Lennie.

      Excellent pie. Easy to make and delicious. My kids love puddings too, so I can see we will be making this in all its pudding variations as well: vanilla, coconut or banana. Almost as easy as pudding out of the box but much tastier! Update..this was so good I couldn't wait to try it again as a coconut cream pie. My daughter suggested I cover top with plastic wrap as it cooled and top it with whipped cream before serving. Divine!

      Easy and very good. I added the coconut for a great banana-coconut cream pie-good reviews from the lucky ones who got to sample it before I finished it off.
