DIRECTIONS

  • Have baked 9-inch pie shell ready.
  • In a large saucepan, scald the milk.
  • In another saucepan, combine the sugar, flour and salt; gradually stir in the scalded milk.
  • Over medium heat, stirring constantly, cook until thickened.
  • Cover and, stirring occasionally, cook for two minutes longer.
  • In a small bowl, have the 3 egg yolks, slightly beaten, ready; stir a small amount of the hot mixture into beaten yolks; when thoroughly combined, stir yolks into hot mixture.
  • Cook for one minute longer, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat and blend in the butter and vanilla.
  • Let sit until lukewarm.
  • When ready to pour, slice bananas and scatter in pie shell; pour warm mixture over bananas.
  • If desired, make a meringue (you'll have 3 leftover egg whites) to top the pie, or just let the pie cool until serving.
