    Something else. I spread melted chocolate over the base of the flan shell before putting in the bananas  -  23 Jan 2011


    delicious tart and easy to make  -  23 Jan 2011


    I give this recipe 5 stars for two reasons. One, this is by far the very best tasting pudding I have ever had! Two, it's easy to make - no difficult cooking techniques required. IMPORTANT TO NOTE: Do NOT bake this pie. It will dry it out and put a tough skin on it. Just refrigerate it and top it with whipped topping when you serve it. The filling has such a wonderful vanilla flavor - yummy! The best crust for this pie, btw, is a vanilla wafer crust. Just mix 1-1/2 c crushed vanilla wafers w/6 T melted butter and bake for 5 mins at 350. Really sets off the banana pie!  -  13 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
