  • Watery Banana Cream Pie
    One of the standard jokes in my family is my "Banana Cream Soup"! The guys love it, but I'd really love to make it be "Banana Cream PIE"! I use a standard custard pie recipe and add bananas, bake the meringue topping, and let it cool several hours. It always looks like it is thick enough, but when I go to cut it, the filling is QUITE runny and soupy, hence the nickname. Any suggestions?
