01

Refrigerate the pie shell until firm, about 30 minutes. Bake until the pie crust looks dry and is light in color about 20-25 minutes.

02

Whisk in the half-and-half or heavy cream, followed by the egg yolks and finally the milk until the mixture is smooth.

03

Peel and slice the bananas thinly on top of the filling and top with remaining filling.

04

The pie is best made and served the same day so the banana slices don't get mushy and browned.
