DIRECTIONS

  • To make pastry, combine flour, sugar and butter in a food processor.
  • Process until the consistency of fine meal.
  • Add beaten egg; continue to process just until dough starts to come together.
  • Gather into a ball, wrap and refrigerate for one hour or place in freezer for 15 minutes to chill.
  • Roll out dough on a floured surface or roll out between two sheets of plastic wrap to an 11-inch circle.
  • Dough is sticky and falls apart easily; just patch together and fit into a nine-inch flan pan with removable bottom; trim edges. (If you don't have a flan pan, a pie plate can be used.) Chill for 30 minutes.
  • Bake pastry at 375 degrees for 12 minutes until light golden in color.
  • Thinly slice five of the bananas and arrange on bottom of pastry shell.
  • Mash the remaining banana and combine with warm cream, 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch and vanilla.
  • Pour over banana layer.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 35 - 40 minutes or until filling is set.
  • Let pie cool slightly.
  • To make meringue, beat egg whites with a pinch of salt until soft peaks form.
  • Gradually beat in 1/3 cup sugar until meringue is stiff and glossy.
  • Spread meringue over warm pie; bake at 350 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes or until browned.
  • Let cool; refrigerate until serving time.
