  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 egg yolks slightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsps unsalted butter
  • 3 bananas ripe, medium-sized
  • 1 pie crust shell refrigerated pie crust dough, 1 sheet
  • 1 cup whipped cream


How to Blind Bake Your Pie Crust

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
  •  Line your deep dish pie plate with your crust and crimp the edges to your desired design. 
  • Using a fork, poke holes in the bottom of the pie crust. 
  •  Cut a square of parchment paper a little larger than the diameter of the pie pan.
  • Place the parchment carefully over the crust and then fill the crust with pie weights, dry beans, or rice. You cannot eat the rice or beans later but you can save them for future baking. 
  •  Bake for 20 minutes and then remove from oven with mitts. 
  • Remove the pie weights and parchment paper, and bake pie for an additional 15-20 minutes. Use a pie shield if crust is browning too much. 
  •  Allow pie to cool before filling.  

Banana Cream Pie Filling Instructions

  • In a thick walled saucepan, combine the flour, salt, sugar, and 2 cups of milk.  
  • Stir constantly over medium heat until the mixture starts to bubble and thicken; boil for 2 minutes. 
  • In a small bowl, stir in a little of the hot cream mixture in with the egg yolks, add to the large pot and stir well. 
  • Cook for two minutes over medium heat and then remove from the heat and add in the butter and vanilla; mix well and allow to cool for a few minutes before adding it into the pre-baked pie crust
  • While your mixture is cooling, line the bottom of your pie pastry with the sliced bananas.  
  • Pour the pudding mixture over the bananas and fill the pie crust.
  • Allow pie to set for minimally 1 hour, but longer is recommended.
  • Once the pie is completely cooled, add the real whipped cream. 


Nutritional Values may differ and are meant to be a guide.
Oven temps & times are based off a STORE BOUGHT pie crust. If you use homemade it is typically thicker and may take longer. 
 This pie can be kept in the fridge until eaten to prevent the real cream from spoiling. It probably will not last long though because it is way too good!
