How to make it

  • 1. Beat together the butter n shortening until smooth and creamy n chill until firm.
  • 2. Sift together the flour, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl.
  • 3. Using a fork, cut the butter and shortening into the dry ingredients, until the mixture has a consistent texture. Mix egg yolk, ice water, and venegar into the dough, then form into a ball and refrigerate it for 1 hour so that it will be easier to work with.
  • 4. Preheat oven to 450* F. When the dough has chilled, roll it out and press it into a 9 inch pie plate.
  • 5. Press parchment paper or aluminum foil into the crust and weight the crust down with a ceramic pie weight or another pie pan filled with dried beans. This will prevent the crust from puffing up n distorting. Bake for 15 inutes, then remove the ewight or pan filled with beans and prick the crust with a fork to allow steam to escape. Bake another 5 to 10 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Let the crust cool.
  • 6. Make the filling by sifting together the sugar, cornstarch, and salt into a medium saucepan.
  • 7 Blend the milk, eggs, and butter in a medium bowl, then add the mixture to teh dry ingredients and cook over medium heat stirring constantly for 6-8 minutes or until the mixture boils and thickens, then cook for 1 minute more.
  • 8. Remove the filling from the heat, and mix in the vanilla.
  • 9. put plastic wrap on the surface of the filling and let it cool to about room temperature. The plastic wrap will prevent the top of the filling from becoming gummy.
  • 10. When the filling has cooled, remove the plastic wrap and add the sliced bananas. Stir.
  • 11. Pour the filling into the pie shell and chill for a couple of hours before serving. Slice across the pie 3 times to make 6 large slices. Serve each slice topped with fresh whipped cream and slivered almonds.
