Banana Pudding Pie

Crust Ingredients:

  • 60 Nilla wafers
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1/2 c unsalted butter, melted

Crust Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Mist 9 in pie plate with cooking spray. Pulse Nilla wafers and sugar in a food processor until ground and combined. Add butter; pulse until crumbly and evenly moistened. Press into pie plate. Bake until edges are golden, about 10 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.

Filling Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 c whole milk
  • 2/3 heavy cream
  • 1/2 c plus 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 5 Tbsp cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3 lg firm-ripe bananas

Filling Steps:

  1. Combine milk, cream and 1/2 c sugar in a heavy-bottom saucepan. Set over medium high heat and bring just to a gentle boil, stirring to dissolve sugar.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk cornstarch, salt and remaining 2 Tbsp sugar; add egg yolks and whisk until smooth.
  3. When milk mixture just begins to boil, remove from heat and slowly drizzle about 1 c into egg yolk mixture, whisking vigorously. Stir that back into the pan and return to stove.
  4. Lower heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly, until custard thickens and comes to a boil.
  5. Boil gently for 1 minute, then remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla until melted and smooth.
  6. Cut 2 bananas into 1/4 in thick slices and spread over bottom of crust. Mash remaining banana with fork and stir into custard.
  7. Spoon custard into crust and smooth top. Cover with plastic wrap, gently pressing wrap directly onto custard surface to keep a skin from forming.
  8. Refrigerate until completely cool and custard has firmed, at least 3 hours.

Topping Ingredients:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp confectioner’s sugar

Topping Steps:

  1. Just before serving, whip cream and confectioner’s sugar until soft peaks form.
  2. Remove plastic wrap and spread whipped cream over top of pie.
