Winner Third Place


2 cups graham cracker crumbs
¼ cup powdered sugar
1 stick of butter, soft
1 c. sugar
¼ c. cornstarch
4 egg yolks
2 ½ cup half and half
2 t. vanilla
Dash of almond flavoring
2 T. butter
Whipped Cream
1 cup whipping cream
¼ cup powdered sugar
1 ½ t. vanilla
Fresh Strawberries
Toasted Pecans (OPTIONAL)


Crust: Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and the butter until combined. Press into a 9 inch pie plate until even layer is achieved. Place in refrigerator until later use.
Filling: Combine the sugar, cornstarch, egg yolks, and half-half together in a heavy saucepan. Cook until filling is thick and bubbly, about 4-5 minutes over medium-high heat. Having a heavy sauce pan is critical in not scorching your filling. Remove thickened filling and run it through a fine mesh sieve, catching strained filling in another bowl. Add the butter and vanilla and stir until melted and combined. Place plastic wrap directly on top of filling and set aside to cool completely in refrigerator, about 30 minutes.
Assembling the Pie: Place 1/3 of filling on bottom of chilled pie crust. Cover filling with banana slices and strawberry slices. Cover fruit with another 1/3 of filling. Cover filling with banana and strawberry slices. Top with remaining 1/3 filling. Place plastic wrap on top and chill for at least 3-4 hours or overnight. Top with whipped cream and extra strawberry slices and toasted pecans if you wish (optional).
