This was a good start, but that is not the same thing as a good recipe. This websites greatest asset is the community of bakers and cooks who can turn just about any recipe into a winner. However, this same community tends to rate its final result rather than the recipe as written. Because of the suggestions of many I was able to make a five-star pie. I used raw sugar instead of white, the slight molasses flavor of raw sugar is perfect with bananas. I changed the flour for cornstarch (3 Tbl). I used the whole egg, after all the nutrients are mostly in the white. I increased the vanilla to a Tablespoon. After step 1, I allowed the mixture to rest for 10-minutes before tempering the eggs. After adding the eggs I brought the mixture back up to simmer before timing the final 2-minutes of cooking. I did NOT bake the pie after assembly. I placed wax paper on the assembled pie to keep a skin from forming. Served with whipped cream (this one's not a recipe change, just a preference). Sorry, but that's too many changes to call this recipe as written 5-star.
Btw the Graham Cracker Crust recipe on this website was perfect for the pie as altered above.
