You're right Kari, this is decadent! I made this for dessert for my son and his family when they came over this evening and the whole pie was gone in a matter of minutes! Wonderful, delicious and easy to put together. Thanks so much for this keeper of a recipe!

If you make the custard using 3 1/2 Tbls cornstarch, 1 2/3 cups water, 14oz sweetened condenced milk, 3 egg yolks beaten mix that all together in a sauce pan and cook and stir until thickend and starting to boil, I do it on Mid high heat, then add 2Tbls butter and 1tsp vanilla and stir, the custard will turn out each time and look and cut beautifully... I make this for a restaurant.. with a gram cracker crust everyone loves it..

Hey Kari, this pie was outstanding. The cream filling was as good as any I have tasted and I loved the use of both strawberries and bananas. Our strawberry plants are producing like crazy and this pie was a great way to use them. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
