- Place banana slices in bottom of cooled baked pie shell.
- Stir together sugar, cornstarch and salt in 2 quart Pyrex measuring cup.

Delicious and easy--a perfect combination for desert! I cheated a bit by using a frozen pie crust and regular milk chocolate chips which still resulted in a pie that had us fighting for the last piece and licking the pie dish clean. By the way instead of boiling the milk mixture in the microwave I used a saucepan and it came out fine. Thanks Rita for sharing this delicious desert which we will be having regularly.
I made this for my husband for Thanksgiving. It was the first pie I ever made and it was a definite hit! Thank you for the great recipe!
This was really great...a big hit with my kids. I used a chocolate cookie crust with this (the ingredients actually made enough for 2 pies). Rich and creamy with a good balance between the banana and chocolate flavors.
