Description

You're going to go bananas for this luscious pie made with a rich and creamy vanilla custard and crisp cookie crust! The trick for best flavor is to pour the hot custard filling over the sliced bananas. As the filling cools, it’ll infuse with that tropical banana flavor. The press-in cookie crumb crust makes the pie beginner-friendly. Note that the time includes 6 hours to cool and chill. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Ashley Strickland Freeman.

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Whirl vanilla wafers in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Pour crumbs into a bowl, measure 2 cups, and return them to the food processor. (Save any extra crumbs for other uses.)
    2. Add brown sugar and melted butter to crumbs. Pulse until mixture resembles slightly wet sand. Press crumbs over the bottom and up the sides of a 9- or 10-inch pie plate, using a dry measuring cup to pack the crumbs. (For a 9-inch pie pan, the crust will be thick, so you may prefer to save about 1/4 cup of the crumb mixture for other uses or to sprinkle around the edge of the finished pie.)
    3. Bake crust until lightly browned and set when lightly touched, 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely on a wire rack, about 1 hour.
