Chocolate banana cream pie


I’ve come up with the ultimate pie for the ultimate sweet tooth. A few of my relatives just love sweets like there is no tomarrow. I find bananas, chocolate, and strawberry goes really nicely together…so why not pie-afy them?

So let’s get this party started.

chocolate cream pie filling

1 c. sugar
1/3 c. flour
1 tsp. vanilla
2 egg yolks
1/8 tsp. salt
2 c. scalded milk
2 sqs. chocolate
1 tsp. butter
Melt the chocolate in milk. Mix dry ingredients; add milk mixture gradually. Cook 15 minutes in double boiler, stirring constantly until mixture thickens.
Mix small amount of mixture with egg yolks and return this to the double boiler. Cook 3 minutes longer. Cool and add vanilla.

banana cream pie filling

3/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
3 egg yolks, beaten
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 bananas, sliced

In a saucepan, combine the sugar, flour, and salt. Add milk in gradually while stirring gently. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is bubbly. Keep stirring and cook for about 2 more minutes, and then remove from the burner.

Stir a small quantity of the hot mixture into the beaten egg yolks, and immediately add egg yolk mixture to the rest of the hot mixture. Cook for 2 more minutes; remember to keep stirring. Remove the mixture from the stove, and add butter and vanilla. Stir until the whole thing has a smooth consistency.

Strawberry whipped cream (about 4 cups)

Stir together 2/3 cup powdered sugar and 1/3 cup strawberry quick in large bowl. Stir in 2 cups (1 pt.) cold whipping cream and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract beat just until stiff. (Do not overbeat)

What do you do with all this yummy goodness?

First you make 2 graham cracker pie crusts. This recipe makes 1.

In a small saucepan or the microwave, melt 6 tablespoons of butter.
Place about 24 graham crackers in a plastic bag. Roll with a rolling pin until finely crushed. This may be done in small batches.
Measure 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs into a medium bowl.
Add 1/4 cup of sugar to the graham crackers.
Add the melted butter.
Stir or blend together with your hands.
Press into the pie plate or other pan.
To pre-bake the pie crust, bake for 8 to 10 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F. oven.

Now, you got your 2 baked pie crusts, now for the tricky part….layering…

You carefully wanna slice some strawberries and bananas, and layer them in the bottom of the pie crust. You want to alternate, banana strawberry banana….then once the bottom is covered in slices, gently add in your banana cream half way in the pie. Then take and carefully add more banana and strawberry slices, alternating as you go. Then carefully top off the rest of your pie with chocolate cream pie filling. Then top off with more banana and strawberry slices.

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 12 to 15 minutes. Chill over night.

Then scoop out your strawberry whipped cream, and drop by tablespoon on the top of your pie. Walla, the ultimate sweet tooth filling pie.
