Banana Cream Pie

Ingredients
  1. 1 The Maine Pie Co. frozen gluten free 9” pie crust
  2. 2 cups milk
  3. 1/4 cup white sugar
  4. 2 egg yolks
  5. 1 egg
  6. 1/4 cup cornstarch
  7. 1/3 cup white sugar
  8. 2 Tablespoons butter
  9. 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  10. 2 bananas
  11. Whipped cream
Instructions
  1. 1. In a heavy saucepan, stir together the milk and 1/4 cup sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  2. 2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and egg. Stir together the remaining sugar and cornstarch: then stir them into the egg until smooth. When the milk comes to a boil, drizzle it into the bowl in a thin stream while mixing so that you do not cook the eggs. Return the mixture to the saucepan, and slowly bring to a boil, stirring constantly so the eggs don’t curdle or scorch on the bottom of the saucepan.
  3. 3. When the mixture comes to a boil and thickens, remove from heat. Stir in the butter and vanilla, mixing until the butter is completely blended in. Pour into a heat-proof container and place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface to prevent a skin from forming.  Refrigerate and chill before using.
  4. 4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take 1 The Maine Pie Co. pie shell and let thaw slightly. (5 minutes) Prick the bottom of the pie shell a few times with a fork then bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.  
  5. 5. After the pastry cream is chilled and the pie shell has cooled, spread a layer of pastry cream on the bottom of the pie shell then top with sliced bananas. Repeat then add the last remaining pastry cream.
  6. 6. Top with fresh made whipped cream and more bananas if you choose and enjoy!!!
