AIMEE'S INDIVIDUAL BANANA PUDDING PIES
Makes 6-8 individual Banana Pudding Pies
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup all purpose flour
2 whole eggs
4 egg yolks (keep the whites for omelets)
2 cups whole milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 bananas, sliced
homemade whipped cream (recipe below)
In a large cast iron skillet or saucepan, whisk sugar, flour, eggs, yolks and milk together. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until your mixture is thick like pudding; this will take about 10 to 12 minutes. Once it reaches this thickness, remove from heat and add vanilla. Refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours then top with homemade whipped cream and a banana slice in the center.
AIMEE'S HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM
2 cups heavy cream
5 Tablespoons powdered sugar
To make homemade whipped cream, with a whisk or hand mixer, beat heavy cream. (Always start with a cold bowl and beaters that you have placed in the freezer) Add sugar then whisk or beat until desired consistency for whipped cream. Refrigerate any leftovers in an air-tight container.
To assemble the individual pies, place four or five vanilla wafers at the bottom of ramekins. Next, add banana slices, then add the banana pudding pie filling; then top with homemade whipped cream. Repeat layers if desired!
