This was more or less banana pudding in a pie form. And since I am a huge banana pudding fan, I thought it was quite tasty! There were 2 things I didn't like. though. One, the custard filling never got really firm. I don't know if this is the nature of this custard, or if the ambiguity of the directions (heat milk until bubbles form on the sides -- well, bubbles formed on the sides of my milk the minute I put it in the pan, before it even got warm). It tasted great, but made for a messy pie. The other thing I didn't care for was the chocolate drizzled on the bottom of the pie crust. It hardened into a substance akin to concrete and made it quite difficult to cut through with a pie cutter. I will definitely make this pie again, but next time cook the custard until boiling so I know it will firm up, and also omit the chocolate and use a vanilla wafer crust instead.
