Homemade Banana Cream Pie by the hubby

   One of my favorite type of pies is Banana Cream Pie. My husband made this beautiful one awhile back, and I wanted to share because it was so delicious! To make this pie, he followed the sugarspunrun recipe, and used the following ingredients:

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon salt

5 large egg yolks

1 1/2 cups milk

1 1/2 cups heavy cream

3 Tablespoons of butter cut into pieces

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 bananas

   In a sauce pan, mix together sugar, cornstarch, and salt, then add in the egg yolks, milk, and heavy cream, mixing til all combined together. Place sauce pan over medium heat and stir constantly until the mixture begins to bubble. Once the bubbling begins, allow it to simmer for 1 minute, monitoring that it doesn't burn. Immediately remove from the heat and add butter a tablespoon at a time. Whisk together and add in the vanilla extract. Once everything is mixed together, pour the filling through a fine mesh strainer and into a heatproof bowl. Cover the filling surface with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming and allow it to cool for 20 minutes. Once cooled, pour some of the filling into a pie crust, smooth it out, and top with sliced bananas, repeat the layers so you have a marriage of pudding and sliced bananas throughout. Fridge for several hours to set, top with sliced bananas and whipped cream.
