Banana Peanut Butter Pie

Here's another recipe that I've already had to ask for twice. Make sure you make it well in advance of when you plan to serve it. (In the morning, if you plan to serve in the evening, or even better, the day before). It uses simple ingredients, and it tastes fabulous!

Banana Peanut Butter Pie
- Michelle Pankratz

1 pre-baked pie shell
4-oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 c peanut butter
1/2 c powdered sugar
3/4 c granulated sugar
1/3 c flour
1/2 t salt
3 eggs
2 c milk
2 T butter (or margarine)
1 t vanilla
2 bananas
Sweetened whipped cream or a small tub of Cool Whip

Combine the cream cheese, peanut butter and powdered sugar, set aside.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the granulated sugar, flour, salt, and eggs.  Slowly whisk in milk. Bring to a boil then cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Set aside.

Press 1/2 of the peanut butter mixture into a baked pie shell. Slice 2 bananas and place over the top. Sprinkle remaining peanut butter mixture over bananas. Pour pudding over the top.

Refrigerate until completely cooled. (This will take several hours, or overnight).

Serve with a generous dollop of whipped cream or Cool Whip.
