I followed this recipe exactly, only I needed more like 4 bananas (but I like A LOT of bananas) and I blotted the bananas dry after dipping in the lemon juice so that I wouldn't get a lemony flavor. It's a great recipe. Much easier than my previous recipe which required tempering of eggs and always had to be doubled. This makes a 'proper' amount of filling so that you have a good sized pie. The flavor is a LITTLE rich and a LITTLE on the sweet side, but not overly so. You just won't be able to sit down and eat the whole pie. If you are not used to making banana cream pie you must make SURE that your filling is completely cool or room temp...even the slightest amount of heat will cause the bananas to turn black.
