There is just something so classic and simple about a homemade fresh Banana Cream Pie!
Flaky pie crust, layered with many layers of fresh sliced bananas, homemade vanilla pastry cream, and topped with pillows of fresh sweetened whipped cream - YUM!
And in the midst of winter, this is such a light and "spring-like" treat - perfect on a cloudy, windy day!
I use this same filling recipe for other yummy things as well, and if I turn around for too long, I find that it tends to disappear from my bowl when I'm not looking!
The hardest part about making this delicious pie is waiting for it to chill for four hours before we can eat it...but the flavors just meld so perfectly - patience, patience!
