Banana Cream-Dream Pie

The BEST Banana Cream Pie. This banana cream pie will leave you dreaming for days of its’ goodness! It’s silk smooth and light while reaming dense and custardy. There is a secret step with the eggs that creates this dreamy consistency. This is a tried and true recipe passed down from Jordan’s grandmother Rhea. Trust me, this pie is called dreamy for a reason!

Custard Filling

  • 6 tablespoons sugar (divided, 3 tablespoons each)
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 egg yolks beaten (save egg whites in a clean bowl)
