Banana Cream Pie

by Laura on April 2, 2011

Our Honey Girl and her Mr. Right stirred up this pie while they were visiting last week.  It was a reminder of just how darn good this creamy classic can be.  A press-in nutmeg graham cracker crust, quick-cooking rich vanilla custard, sliced bananas, and a crown of softly whipped cream, it’s quite simple. My nutmeg graham cracker crust is extra thick and buttery, so if you favor a more traditional crust, cut the recipe by a third or by half.

Banana Cream Pie is my all time favorite pie no matter what! I usually only get it once a year around Thanksgiving. I might have to give in and make your version now. The nutmeg in the crust sounds perfect.

I have been looking for a recipe for banana cream pie with nutmeg and homemade custard filling and also a cooked graham cracker crust-lightly browned. It is delicious cold for summer! The only difference was this recipe called for the spinkling of the nutmeg on top of the whip cream. I will try this one as it is the best I have found yet and so close to the one I had out of one of the food magazines. Thank you so much for bringing back my memory and the details of the ingredients-Nell Guerra
P.S. this site seems really great and glad i found it!
