Banana Cream Pie

Banana Cream Pie

1/3 cup all purpose flour or 1/4 cup cornstarch
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups milk - scalded
3 slightly beaten egg yolks
2 TB butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 bananas, slices
1 baked pie shell

In a large saucepan, whisk together the sugar, flour and salt.  Gradually add the scalded milk to the pan and cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens.  Cook 2 minutes more and then remove from heat.

Add a small amount of the hot cream mixture to the beaten egg yolks and stir.  Then add the egg yolk mixture back into the rest of the cream mixture and stir.  Cook 1 minute and stir constantly.  Add the butter and vanilla and stir to combine.
Cool the mixture slightly.  Arrange a layer of the sliced bananas on the bottom of the baked pie shell.  Poor the pudding mixture over the bananas.  If you want you can alternate the sliced bananas and pudding mixture 2 times to create a layered pie.
