Granny’s Banana Cream Pie

Wonderful!!! This pie filling will stand up to any I have ever tasted! My family loves this pie! The filling is very creamy with that great homemade taste. It’s fantastic!!

As for the bananas, I used the ones on the ripe end but that were still firm. It makes the pie taste more banana-ish.”

This goes into my keepers file!
