This is the recipe I reach for when I want to make a quick dessert that will be guaranteed to please my guests. You can adapt this recipe by making your own custard filling. I find the Jello Cooked Pudding mix works just fine.
Graham Cracker crust
1/3 cup melted butter
1/ 1/2 cups graham wafer crumbs
1- 2 Tbsp sugar.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
Reserve about 1/2 cup crumbs and press remaining crumbs into 9 or 10 inch pie plate. Refrigerate while you make the filling.
1 package Jello Cooked pudding mix
2 3/4 cups milk
1 Tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp good vanilla
In a large bowl or glass 8 cup measure, stir pudding mix with milk, blending well with whisk. Microwave a minute at a time, stirring well each time until mixture begins to thicken and bubble. Add butter and vanilla, stirring well. Let it cool, stirring every few minutes while you prepare the bananas.
Cut 2 or 3 large bananas into 1/2 inch slices and arrange on the bottom and around the sides of the graham crust. Pour warm custard filling over bananas and refrigerate until filling is completely cold.
Whip one pint of Whipping cream adding bit of sugar and vanilla to taste. Spread over custard and sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Refrigerate until serving.
