    Strawberry Banana Cream Pie

    Source of Recipe

    The Pastry Shop

    List of Ingredients

    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    4 egg yolks
    2 cups milk
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
    1 baked 9-inch pie shell
    1 large or 2 small bananas
    Whipped cream (optional)


    In medium-size saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. In small bowl,
    blend together egg yolks and milk. Stir small amount of milk mixture into
    ingredients, making a smooth paste. Gradually blend in remaining milk
    mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens
    and boils.
    Boil, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla
    extract. Cool quickly by setting pan in bowl of ice water and stirring.

    Set aside about 1/4 cup strawberry slices for garnish. Arrange remaining
    strawberry slices in pie shell. Peel and slice bananas. Pour half of the
    mixture over strawberries. Top with banana slices. Cover with remaining
    custard mixture. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

    Before serving, top pie with reserved strawberry slices. Garnish with a
    dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
