Johns Best Ever Banana Cream Pie
Banana Cream Pie
3 eggs, separated
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tbsp sugar pinch of salt
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 deep dish pie crust
slice 2 bananas & layer in crust.
in large mixing bowl mix sugar, salt & 3 bananas. mash together
mix in egg yolks, lemon, vanilla & sweetened condensed milk. pour into crust.
bake in preheated oven 40-45 minutes until set.
top with meringue.
3 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tarter
1/4 c sugar
beat egg whites until ribbon stage. add cream of tarter & vanilla. beat & slowly add sugar till soft peaks form. put on top of cooled pie; the rougher the meringue looks, the more ridges, the better.
broil until golden brown.
hint: replace the regular pie crust with a vanilla wafer crust. fill 9 inch pie tin with finely crushed vanilla wafers and melted butter, like you would with a graham cracker crust.
