    OMG.... The most delicious Banana Cream Pie I ever made. Leave it up to Martha, she is the greatest cook and Baker. Can't get enough of this pie. Must make it. Follow the recipe and people just can't stop raving about it. Enjoy!! Absolutely delicious.

    I tried 3 banana cream pie recipes before I tried this one, and it's pretty spot on for a perfectly textured cream and flakey crust. I like my pies not too sweet, so I reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup, and it still had a sweetness. I also added some vanilla. Wonderful recipe, will definitely be making this again!

    This pie is terrific! I slice the bananas for the top just before I serve it so that they do not turn brown. I love this recipe because like all Martha recipes, it's easy to follow, the recipe works and the end result is absolutely delicious!

    This was a complete success at Thanksgiving, 2013! Everyone wanted the recipe so I directed them to Martha Stewart's website. This recipe is fairly straight forward. If you follow the directions to a T then you won't be disappointed.

      Love this recipe!. I too reduced the sugar to 1/3 Cup. I also modified it in tribute to a black bottom Banana Cream Pie recipe from Cooking Light Nov 1998. Which is to say I added a layer of Ganache to the bottom of the pie before layering bananas. Ganache: 1/2C heavy cream heated, poured over 4oz Bittersweet Chocolate, cooled.

    A family Fourth of July hit! They loved it. To make it festive for the Fourth, I lined the bottom with slice strawberries, and did a striped design across the top with sliced strawberries and blueberries. The whipped cream showed through to bring the red, white and blue theme together. It was beautiful!

    I have made this several times and the pies always come out wonderful. The filling is light and creamy with a burst of fresh banana sweetness. I used my own pie crust recipe which yields a buttery, flaky crust.

    My first try yielded slightly soupy filling. Make sure you cook your custard long enough. It's a wonderful pie - my whole family requests it often!!

    You need to check print capabilities for 8.5X11. I had to go to extraordinary lengths to get the full recipe to print! I have Mozilla and Windows XP. Thanks.

    I haven't tried this but you might try a little of the Stay Fresh fruit powder. It works great on other fruits. Good luck!
