Mile-Hi Banana Cream Pie
9 inch baked pie shell
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups milk
4 large egg yolks, beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla, divided
1 1/2 cups heavy cream, divided
5 large bananas, divided
1/2 cup apricot preserves
In medium saucepan, combine sugar, flour, cornstarch and salt. Gradually add milk; stir until smooth. Cook on medium heat, bring to a boil, and cook for 1 minutes, stirring constantly.

In small bowl, beat egg yolks. Stir in 1/2 cup of the hot milk custard; then stir the egg custard back into the saucepan. Cook another 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour into a medium bowl and set custard aside to cool to room temperature. Stir occasionally. After the custard is cooled, stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. In a small bowl, whip 1/2 cup cream until it peaks; then fold into the custard.

Cut 2 bananas into 1/4 inch slices; arrange on bottom and sides of baked pie crust. Spoon in custard, spread evenly to the edges. Press plastic wrap directly on the custard and chill for 4 hours or overnight.

One hour before serving, in a small bowl, whip remaining 1 cup cream with remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla until it peaks. Spread over the pie forming a high peak. Slice remaining bananas and arrange by laying them on top, starting a row across the center.

In a small saucepan, heat preserves; then press them through a sieve. Brush over the bananas. Return to the refrigerator and chill until ready to serve.

Servings: 1 9 inch pie
