I have always loved to bake, but pies are my special favorites. Cream pies, like this easy banana pudding piefrom scratch! bring back memories of warm summer days and sunshine and baking with my mom. She was a pie-making goddess, at least in my eyes. I would follow her in wonder as she formed crusts, cut fruit or washed berries, cooked custards and finally piled her creation in to a dish and loaded it with fresh cream. Sometimes I could help, sorting berries, or better, test tasting at various stages to ensure good quality control. She always took my advice seriously, even when I insisted there needed to be more cream on top, mom!

If making custard from scratch feels intimidating, dont worry. The recipe here offers clear directions and an easy method to make it. It also pours the custard over lots of fresh chopped bananas so how could you go wrong? No matter what this dish is delicious and a clear winner over anything you could buy at the grocers.

This recipe also makes a homemade pie easy because it suggests a couple of different purchased crusts. This one is made with a particular type of cookie that you can discover on the site that complements the banana and cream perfectly.

Of course, the pie isnt complete until you make the whipped cream and load it on top. Its impossible to add too much cream to a summer pie, but the amount you need to buy is listed in the recipe. Buy extra in case little hands are helping you out by helping themselves to the cream!

Finally, be sure to chill the banana cream pie really well, for several hours at least. Banana cream pie and homemade custards taste best when the flavors are allowed to mingle a few hours before serving and then are served very cold.
