The great thing about this pie is that you probably already have everything you need to make it. The Hoosier Mama Book of Pie shows you how to take sugar and cream and turn it into a pie with notes of creme brulee and buttery vanilla.

An easy banana cream pie with a cornflake crust.
The true shining star of this pie is the black walnut whipped cream. While it may take some hunting to find walnut extract, the nutty bite and unexpected earthy undertone it adds to an otherwise incredibly sweet pie ensures a proper balancing act of flavors, and helps to pick up the traces of walnut in the pie crust.
This gluten-free, sugar-free pie has all the creamy vanilla flavor of the classic version.
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.
