Ok, this pie is amazing! I read a lot of reviews and was about to use cornstarch and not bake it until I read a different review. She said this is not instant pudding... this is a french method, DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING and bake it. She was right. I think that for the people that came out with a runny pie, they either were using skim milk, or were not patient enough during the stirring part. If you follow exactly what she says to do (i pre-measured everything and had it ready beforehand) and add things exactly when she says to, it will come out extremely thick. It takes constant stirring at medium heat for a while before the edge will begin to bubble. Once that happens, thats when you continue to stir for 2 minutes and remove from heat, add a little to the egg, pour egg mixture back into pot and cook for a further 2 mins etc... After i finished making it, i let it cool completely. i used a chilled graham cracker pie crust i made and lined it with sliced bananas. I stirred in another sliced banana into the mixture and poured that on top. I then baked it as it said and that only helped it set and brought out an aroma! smelled delicious. i let it cool completely and it put back in fridge until ready to serve. I then decorated top with sliced bananas around the rim like in the picture. I served with freshly made whipped cream. It tasted like something out of a french bakery and I'm no baker! It is perfect the way the recipe is... no need to change anything, DO bake it, and no need
