Banana Cream Pie Recipe
12 graham cracker squares
1 tbsp butter, melted (Or, up to this point, you can use a pre-made crust)
1 ½ tsp vanilla pudding gelatin
3 tbsp boiling water
⅓ cup, plus ½ tsp sugar
3 tbsp flour
2 egg yolks
1 ½ cups milk
1 tsp Happy Home© Imitation Vanilla Flavor
2 cups sliced banana (about 3 bananas)
¼ cup whipping cream
1 tsp Happy Home© Natural Banana Flavor (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F
Spray a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray. In a food processor, process graham crackers until finely ground. Add butter and 1 tbsp of water and process until the crumbs clump together. Press crumb mixture into bottom of pie plate and about ½ inch up the sides. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, then let cool. (Or you can skip this step if you’re using a pre-made crust.)
In the meantime, make the filling. Put the gelatin in a small bowl; add 3 tbsp of boiling water and stir until the gelatin is dissolved. In a medium saucepan, whisk together ⅓ cup of sugar and the flour. In a medium bowl, lightly beat the milk and eggs together. Add the egg and dissolve. Cook over a medium heat, stirring constantly, for 10 minutes, until mixture comes to a boil and has thickened. Stir in the Happy Home© Imitation Vanilla Flavor and gelatin. Set aside to cool slightly. For a more intense banana flavor, you can also add a teaspoon of Happy Home© Natural Banana Flavor.
Arrange the sliced bananas on the graham cracker crust and pour the pudding on top. Place in the refrigerator until the pudding has set, about 3 hours.
Whip the cream with an electric beater. When it is about halfway done, add ½ teaspoon of sugar, then continue whipping until fully whipped. Put the whipped cream in a plastic bag, concentrating it in 1 corner of the bag. Snip that corner off the bag and squeeze the whipped cream out of the bag in a decorative pattern around the pie.
