Banana Cream Pie- my husbands favorite recipe… of all time

This recipe happens to be my husbands favorite, of ALL time. In fact, in I’ve watched my mother -in -law make this recipe, on numerous occasions, and only in the last few years, I have made it myself. It’s perfection, in a pie… AND because I love you all, I’ve decided to share the recipe with you in honor of my husbands 40th birthday- in which we had 6 banana cream pies to celebrate with our family and friends.

Happy Baking!
