Banana Cream Dessert Recipe

Banana Cream Dessert Recipe

WHEN OUR DAUGHTER was at Lehigh University, the school held a recipe contest for "old home-cooking" dishes. Tamie's meal won, and this recipe was part of the menu. For her prize, she was served her dinner in the university's Presidential Dining Room with five of her friends. It was an evening she'll always remember. -Nancy Walters, Ft. Myers, Florida

"It might be that I had to substitute honey roasted peanuts in place of the peanut brittle, but this dessert was rather bland."
