LOVED it & recommend a little more clarity on the cooking time for the new bakers. I started w/ toasting 1 cup coconut for 5-7 minutes in oven at 350. When combining ingredients together-turn temp to medium-high heat, and use a whisk. Add egg yolks slowly (whisking the entire time you add them). Then, bring heat down to medium heat and begin whisking constantly for about 5-7 minutes or until thick and bubbly 4.) Gently fold in butter, vanilla and roasted coconut. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Wrap with plastic wrap (Custard sometimes has a top layer of film on it & plastic wrap will easily lift it) Let it cool for at least 3 hrs. Then top w/ whipped cream , 1/2 cup of additional roasted coconut & bananas.

This is really good but is vastly improved with the following: 1. Add 2 tablespoons of dark rum to the custard mix -while cooking. 2. Add 1 chopped/minced banana to the custard mix - after cooking. 3. Make your own graham cracker crust - be sure to add nutmeg to the crushed grahams. 4. Add tablespoon of dark rum to the fresh whipped cream topping. 5. After icing with whipped cream and sprinkling copiously with toasted coconut, rim outside of pie with layer of banana slices on edge.

Delicious! I thought this was a very good recipe. I had never made a banana cream pie before and I thought that it was very easy. I made my own graham pie crust which is definately the way to go. The toasted coconut complimented the banana very nicely, and I LOVE coconut. My only complaint, and the reason why I did not give it five stars is because the condensed milk was not my favorite, so I will probably look for a different sauce base the next time I make it. However, great overall.
