Finally, a recipe that is real "from scratch" banana pudding and pie filling.. Not that vanilla pudding with banana slices. Yay! I just made this recipe and it is to die for. I luv it. It is sooo yummy. I put the pudding in cups not a pie. I will try that later. I have picky eaters and they love it. Just like Lotso the Bear would say "itsa keepah" :D

This was the best banana cream pie I have ever made and tasted!! I made the two pie recipe but only made one pie with a homemade graham cracker crust and the rest of it I made banana pudding with vanilla wafers for my mom's daycare kids. I have tried other boxed banana pudding and pie mixes and this recipe beats them by far and was so easy to make!! I was so proud that I made it because it was from scratch!! Thank you so much for sharing!! It was delicious!!

Made just half of this recipe as a special treat for a friend of mine who is really a banana cream pie fan! It was his birthday, but I wasn't about to make him a cake, so . . . Still, with 3 candles on it (for yesterday, today & tomorrow), he really enjoyed it! You've definitely got a great way to put together this kind of pie! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
