Banana custard pie is so easy to make yet the result always taste so delicious. It is often served as light dessert during the summer months but can also be enjoyed them as a special treat on Easter or Valentine's Day.
If you want, an egg can be added to the custard. Fill the pastry only 3/4 full since it will create a mess if it's overflowing. Besides an individual mini pie, you can also use your 8 in pie dish.
