#3734 - Quick Banana Cream Pie

(by Marcia Stollzfuss - friend)

1 unbaked pie crust dough
sliced bananas (coin shaped pieces--enough to cover bottom crust)
3 cups milk
1/2 cup flour
1 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
4 egg yolks
3 TBSP butter
1 tsp. vanilla

Spray a pie plate with Pam, insert the pie dough and flute the edges. Use the tines of a fork to prick holes in the bottom of the pie dough. Spray the inside of the pie dough with Pam. Insert a second pie plate into the pie dough (to keep dough from shrinking when baking). Bake at 375 degrees 18-20 minutes or until crust is browned. Cool crust completely. In a saucepan add flour, white sugar and salt--stir to mix. Add milk while stirring. Place saucepan over medium low heat and add the butter--cook/stir until boiling. Once boiling, cook/stir for 2 minutes or until mixture is thickened. Remove from heat--add vanilla--stir well. In a bowl add egg yolks--beat with a fork. Add a little of the hot milk mixture to the beaten egg yolks while stirring. Keep adding more until the egg yolk mixture is hot, then dump the egg yolk mixture into the milk mixture--stir well. Fill the bottom of the cooled crust with the sliced bananas. Pour the whole milk mixture over the sliced bananas in the crust. Cool completely, then refrigerate until cold. Top with whipped cream (or you can make your own meringue if you wish).
