Cooks with Passion

Isn't that what it is all about. PASSION. We love to eat. We love to get people together to eat. We love meeting places to eat. We just love eating.
I look forward to making that special thing that makes everyone smile.
Hope you enjoy my favorites.

Banana Cream Pie

A simple pie done in the microwave.
I love the coconut extract!

5 TB. cornstarch
2 TB. Tapioca
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2 1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream

Mix in a microwave safe bowl. Bring to a boil in the microwave. Stir constantly every minute or so. This will get frothy. Let it go for about 6-10 mins.

Meanwhile, mix in a large metal bowl :

4 egg yolks

Add the hot mixture from the microwave to the eggs very slowly while whisking quickly.
This will make your custard.
When cool add sliced bananas, 1 1/2 tsp. coconut extract, and 2 TB. of butter.

Pour custard into pie crusts.
Makes enough filling for 2 pies. Cool further in fridge for several hours.
Top with whipped cream.
