Banana Cream Pie

Oh my! I missed Banana Cream Pie Day! Well, here is a great recipe for a banana cream pie! I personally HATE raw bananas.  That’s right.  I think they are just awful.  However, one of my good friends loves this pie and so I made it for them as a gift! Apparently it was delicious. I can’t saw for sure since there is no way I would eat this pie, but they were super happy with it.  I hope that you give this banana cream pie a try as it is super simple to make and looks really pretty when assembled.

 Banana Cream Pie

Ingredients:

 

For the crust:

2 cups graham cracker crumbs

1/2 cup sugar

8 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

 

For the filling:

1 ½ bananas, 1/2 banana for divided use

1 cup milk

1 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup corn starch

1/2 cup sugar, plus 2 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla

1/4 kosher salt

 

Directions:

1. Line a cupcake pan with paper cups. Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter together.  Press into the bottoms of the cupcake pan. Bake for about 6-8 minutes at 350.  I had enough to make a small pie on the side in a small cake pan.

2. Place all ingredients in food processor bowl or blender and process to combine. Pour mixture into a saucepan over medium heat and cook until mixture starts to bubble, making sure to constantly whisk. Continue to cook mixture until it thickens, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

3. Assemble the mini pies by filling the cupcake slots, alternate between the custard and sliced bananas.  Top with whipped cream.
