This was fantastic. I made it two nights in a row.However the second time I just used vanilla pudding instead of making the custard. This was very good.

Sorry to say but the custard did not taste good and had a grainy texture.

All I can say is...its the best! My friends and I have renamed it Survivor Pie and we have it every Thursday night! One timesaving hint-make the custard one night, cool overnight, then finish the pies in 20 mins the next night. Also don't stop stiring when heating it(under medium heat) on the stove top. It burns easy and clumps up.

A trip to the tropics without leaving home. This pie has great flavor and nice presentation. I used real whipped cream flavored with orange extract for yet another taste sensation. I am supposed to host a dessert bar for my club's progressive dinner in a few weeks, and I believe this may be on the buffet. Thanks Connie.

excellent! very good and easy. One thing that i must let everyone know is that when your making the custard you can not! stop stirring or it will scorch! continuously stir this please or it wont turn out! dont bake ouyr crust and put your custard on when its still warm because if you let it cool it will thicken too much and it wont spread well. But other than that it was great and i've made it 3 times!

This recipe brought me a lot of praise, and it is a very refreshing summer dessert. I was pressed for time, so I used 2 (3.4oz.) pkgs of instant french vanilla pudding instead of making the custard. I also added strawberries on top of the bananas, and used oreo cookie crumbs instead of the graham crackers crumbs and real whip cream. It was delicious. My husband wants me to make it again tonight.

I tried coconut cookies for the crust. It was absolutely amazing and no fuss to make at all.

Delicious although we modified it a bit by using an extra cup of graham crackers and extra 1/2 stick of butter(the crust wasn’t thick enough the first time around)& we used two small packages of French vanilla pudding mix. I chilled the crust a bit before putting the mix on top and also let the pudding set a bit before putting in on the crust and nuts OH MY that was a great addition. I will make this again for sure it’s a delicious and light summer dessert. I'm glad I found it!!!
