Banana Cream Pie Recipe by Chef Shelley Pogue

This is a great recipe, and it will go great with any meal for the family. This is a delicious banana cream pie recipe
that is very easy to make, that is topped with sliced bananas and
sweetened whipped cream.

Ingredients you will need:

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 Cups milk

6 Egg yolks, slightly beaten

2 Tablespoons butter

2 Teaspoon vanilla bean paste

2 Baked 9-inch pie pastry shells or you can make and substitute graham cracker crusts if you like

10 ripe but firm bananas

2 Cups of Sweetened whipped cream

Sprig of Mint for final garnish if you prefer but is not necessary

Preparing you Banana Cream Pie:

you will combine all of the milk, and the sugar, vanilla bean paste,
cornstarch, and salt on top of a double boiler. A double boiler is a pot
filled with water that is directly over the heat, with another pan
without any water on top of the pan over the heat. This is a design
created long ago to help you from burning delicate sauces, or cream
fillings for pies etc., so you will not burn them. You will whisk this
sugar, milk and starch mixture vigorously to get the sugar melted, and
also to make sure that you do not burn the milk. You will cook over
the double boiler until the mixture is well thickened, while you have
stirred constantly, making sure there are not starch globs in the
mixture. You should have to stir for about 10-20 minutes, or until it is
thickened to a very thick like oatmeal consistency. You will then add a
small amount of the beaten egg yolks to the hot milk mixture into the
while stirring constantly. You will do this in small amounts, until all
of the eggs are incorporated. You will then add back over the double
boiler and cook for 2-3 minutes longer. You will remove the creamy
mixture from heat, and add the butter and mix into the filling and then
let cool thoroughly.

While the mixture is cooling I would bake the
pie shells according to the instructions on the package. I would cook
until done and let them cool totally, as you do not want to create a
soggy bottom pie. You will then add to the bottom of the cooked and then
cooled pie shells with about ½ of the amount of cooled filling in each
pie shell. You will then peel eight of the bananas, and slice them into
the pie shell. You will then cover the cut bananas with the remaining
pie filling. For garnish you will cut on a bias or slanted angle pieces
for the two remaining bananas. You will add most of the remaining pieces
around the edges, and then you will whip some heavy cream with some
sugar to stiff peaks. If you do not want to go through the trouble of
whipping heavy cream you can use miracle whip or your local brand. In
the center of the pie you will add the whipped cream, and then some of
the bananas on the top in a flower pattern, or something creative. Add
the sprig of mint to the top of the dessert and voila, Banana Cream Pie.
This is a really easy recipe, and it is a good tasting recipe. I hope
that you enjoy it.
