Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • FILLING:
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 2 large firm bananas

Directions

  1. Combine the cracker crumbs, sugar and butter; press onto the bottom and up the sides of five 5-in. pie plates. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Stir in milk and water until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.
  3. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolks; return all to pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla. Press plastic wrap onto surface of custard; cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  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.
