Banana Cream Pie Recipe

Banana  Cream Pie                   


40 vanilla wafers
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 1/2 cups milk
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1 1/4 tsp. vanilla
4 medium bananas
1 cup whipping cream
2 Tbsp. sifted powdered sugar


Crush 30 of the vanilla wafers into fine crumbs (1 1/2 cups). In a bowl combine crumbs and melted butter or margarine and toss to mix well. Spread into a 9 in. pie plate. Press onto bottom and sides to form a firm crust; cover and chill.


In a saucepan combine granulated sugar, cornstarch, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir in milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat and gradually stir 1 cup of the hot filling into the egg yolks. Return the mixture to a saucepan and bring to boiling. Reduce heat, cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat, stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Slice 3 bananas onto the chilled crust. Spread 1/2 of the filling. Layer remaining vanilla wafers on filling. Chop 2 remaining bananas and place on wafers. Cover with remaining filling, cover and chill at least 4 hours. Prior to serving, combine whipping cream, powdered sugar, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla in a chilled mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium until stiff peaks form. Spread whipped cream over pie.
