Banana Creme Pie

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was selected by Amy of Sing for Your Supper. To be honest, I don't remember much of this dessert - I remember it coming together easily, and being worried that I added too much cornstarch because the filling was so stiff, but it all spread out fine in the end. I sort of rushed this one, then dropped it off at my brother's house on my way out of town, sneaking in a little slice on the way.

I'm particularly fond of bananas, and I had all the other ingredients readily on hand, so I'm sure this is another one of those recipes I can make when I start over-accumulating ripened bananas (the staples so far being banana bread or banana pecan ice cream). Only problem is that it'd disappear too quickly at that point. And I'd be assuring myself that it's healthy to eat the whole pie since it has fruit in it.
