This pie was really tasty. It was more like a banana pie with custard, but it was definitely good. I need to do more research to find the best banana cream pie. Any recommendations?

"Banana Cream Pie is one of the yummiest things on earth and this is a great one. May use 3 tablespoons of cornstarch in place of flour."
yield 1 - 9 inch pie
¾ cup white sugar
⅓ cup all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
3 egg yolks, beaten
2 tablespoons butter
1 ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
4 bananas, sliced
1. In a saucepan, combine the sugar, flour, and salt. Add milk in gradually while stirring gently. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is bubbly. Keep stirring and cook for about 2 more minutes, and then remove from the burner.
2. Stir a small quantity of the hot mixture into the beaten egg yolks, and immediately add egg yolk mixture to the rest of the hot mixture. Cook for 2 more minutes; remember to keep stirring. Remove the mixture from the stove, and add butter and vanilla. Stir until the whole thing has a smooth consistency.
3. Slice bananas into the cooled baked pastry shell. Top with pudding mixture.
4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 12 to 15 minutes. Chill for an hour.
