Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • FILLING:
  • 2/3 cup sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 egg yolks, lightly beaten

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

  4. In a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Slice bananas into crusts; spoon custard over top. Top with whipped cream. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving. Yield: 5 mini pies.
