Banana Cream Pie

Recipe 11.

Banana Creme Pie

one baked pie crust (I just bought frozen pie dough, pie crust is for another day)
3/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups milk
3 egg yolks, beaten
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/4 tsp vanilla
4 sliced bananas

Combine sugar, flour, and salt in a saucepan.  Add in milk while stirring, and then pump up the heat! Actually, only cook at a medium heat until it becomes bubbly, and then stir and cook for about 2 more minutes. Stir in a part of the hot mixture with the beaten yolks, and then add it all right back in. Cook for two more minutes, and then add butter and vanilla.  Stir until it is all smooth and pudding-like.

Some like to mix the banana pieces in with the pudding, but I decided to layer mine across the bottom of the crust, and poured the mixture on top. Save some banana slices for later!

Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.  Chill in the fridge for about an hour. Then, if you are awesome like me, you'll put a whole 5" layer of cool whip on top. Ok, 5" was an exaggeration, but if you do that, please take a picture and become my hero.

Make sure you have 6 or 7 of your favorite people on hand, because it will be gone in 15 minutes flat. No joke. This was probably THE best banana pie I've ever had.
