Looking for an amazing banana cream pie recipe!

Try this, it's my husband's fave!
Use vanilla wafers instead of graham crackers to make the crust. Make instant banana cream flavoured pudding and fold in half of an 8 ounce tub of thawed french vanilla cool-whip. Slice up a few bananas. now... layer this way:
pudding, bananas, pudding, bananas until it's as full as you like... I make it heaping. Chill this well. Then "frost" with the rest of the cool-whip. I get requests for this one most.
I don't have my recipe on me, but I can tell you if you are making the custard from scratch, pour the hot custard into a glass pie pan to cool for 30 minutes before you mix in the bananas. This is true of chocolate cream pie, or coconut cream pie too. Pouring very hot custard into a baked pie shell will make the pie shell get soggy faster. Cooling it down first gives the crust a fighting chance.
My recipe is so easy. First buy a keebler or any brand graham cracker crust or most times I use the chocolate pie crust. then I make the cooked type of vanilla pudding, 1 box is good for an 8'' pie. I then slice up 2-3 soft bananas; not too ripe and not too firm, right into the bottom of the pie shell, add the pudding on top and refrigerate about 4 hours. Top with homemade whipped cream or reddi whip. I'm always asked to bring this and my chocolate cream pie to all family functions. Good Luck!

I know that it says to use all the fat free stuff, but I never do. I like the good old fat foods!
Slice bananas. Place 1/2 of the banana slices on bottom of crust. Set remaining banana slices aside.
Pour milk into large bowl. Add pudding mixes. Beat with wire whisk 2 minutes or until well blended. Gently stir in 1 cup of the whipped topping with wire whisk. Spoon 1/2 of the pudding mixture into crust. Top with remaining banana slices; cover with remaining pudding mixture.
Refrigerate 3 hours or until set. Serve topped with remaining whipped topping. Store leftover pie in refrigerator.

Like you, I will not adulterate my dessert with diet items. I'd rather just have a smaller portion and have it taste the way it's supposed to taste. Thank you for a great-sounding recipe, Jodi.
Combine cornstarch, sugar and salt in top of double boiler. Gradually whisk in milk. Cook over simmering water, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens, about 10 minutes.
Mixture must boil to thicken. Lightly beat egg yolks in small bowl. Slowly add about 1/4 cup hot mixture to egg yolks and mix well. Stir egg yolks back into milk mixture in double boiler and cook 5 minutes. Let cool slightly, then stir in butter and vanilla until butter melts. Add banana slices. Pour into cooled baked pie shell and chill until set, about 1 1/2 hours. Top with sweetened whipped cream. Serves 6.

Mix pudding and cold milk well, and while it thickens, line crusts with bananas. When pudding has thickened some, add sweetened condensed milk to it and mix well. Stir 4 oz. Cool Whip into pudding mix and top bananas evenly. Cover pies well and chill for 1 hour at least. Better chilled longer. Remove and top with remaining Cool Whip. Serve immediately.
