1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 drops yellow food coloring (optional)
2 bananas, not too ripe
1 cup whipped topping
1 8" pie crust, pastry or graham cracker, pre-baked
In a medium sized sauce pan whisk milk, cornstarch, sugar and salt together. Over medium heat stir continually until mixture thickens and begins to bubble. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and food coloring. Allow to cool to room to lukewarm temperature.
Spread half of the pudding mixture into pie crust. Slice bananas on top. Spread remaining half of pudding on top of bananas making sure they are all covered. Place in refrigerator and allow to chill for 4 hours. Spread whipped topping on top of pie. Serves 8.
This pie doesn't last very long in our house. Give it a try and see how long it lasts in yours.
