Banana Cream Pie
This is my go-to recipe for banana cream pie. I promise that you won't be sorry that you took the time to make the pudding by hand—it blows boxed pudding away, there is simply no comparison. I like to blind bake the crust to a crispy golden brown, then remove it from the pie plate for a freestanding pie that is easy to slice or give away.
