How to make it

  • For crust, preheat oven to 325 °F.
  • Pulse all ingredients in a food processor until crumbly, then press into a deep 9-inch pie pan. Bake for 8 minutes, until edge of crust just begins to brown. Cool.
  • For white chocolate cream, heat milk to just below a simmer. Whisk yolks, sugar and cornstarch together. Slowly add hot milk to egg mixture, whisking and return to medium heat. Stir custard until it thickens and is shiny, about 5 minutes, Strain hot custard over white chocolate and butter, and stir until melted.
  • Cover surface of custard directly with plastic wrap and cool. Chill completely.
  • For bananas, heat sugar and corn syrup in a large sauté pan over medium high heat. Stir gently until melted, then let sugar cook without stirring until amber, about 3 minutes. Whisk in whipping cream carefully (watching for steam) and add bananas. Stir to coat and add rum and vanilla. Remove from heat and let cool 10 minutes.
  • Spread bananas over bottom of cooled pie shell. Top bananas with chilled white chocolate cream.
  • For cream, whip cream and sugar to soft peaks and spread over pie. Using a vegetable peeler, peel “curls” from white chocolate and arrange in the center as garnish. Chill until ready to serve.

    I tried this last night for Thanksgiving and I'll say the flavor-OUT OF THIS WORLD! Buit none of it set right. The chocolate cream was as thin as ice cream and my whipped cream was a bust. Does anyone know approximately how long you need to whip the heavy cream for? My husband did it for me and we got it somewhat heavy but never into "stiff peaks". I am determined to try it again-it was an ice creamy mess lol But not one bit of it remained.
