Quick and Easy Banana Cream Pie

This is the recipe I reach for when I want to make a quick dessert 
that will be guaranteed to please my guests. 
You can adapt this recipe by making your own custard filling.
 I find the Jello Cooked Pudding mix works just fine.
For the Graham Cracker crust:
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/ 1/2 cups graham wafer crumbs
  • 1- 2 tablespoons sugar.

For the Custard filling:
  • 1 package Jello Cooked pudding mix
  • 2 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Additional ingredients:

  • 2-3 large bananas peeled
  • 1 pint whipping cream
  • 1-2 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Reserve about 1/2 cup crumbs and press remaining crumbs into 9 or 10 inch pie plate.
  3. Refrigerate while you make the filling.
  4. In a large bowl or glass 8 cup measure, stir pudding mix with milk, blending well with whisk. 
  5. Microwave a minute at a time, stirring well each time until mixture begins to thicken and bubble. 
  6. Add butter and vanilla, stirring well. Let it cool, stirring every few minutes while you prepare the bananas.
  7. Cut 2 or 3 large bananas into 1/2 inch slices and arrange on the bottom and around the sides of the graham crust. 
  8. Pour warm custard filling over bananas and refrigerate until filling is completely cold.
  9. Whip one pint of Whipping cream  icing sugar and vanilla. 
  10. Spread over custard and sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Refrigerate until serving.
