Homemade Banana Cream Pie

finished Banana Cream Pie
This is a wonderful way to put a few bananas to use. This pie has a delicious vanilla pudding made from scratch. If you want to cut major corners, you could just use ready-made pudding to pour over the bananas! You can use your favourite pie crust recipe. I made a simple graham cracker crust.
