Old-Fashioned Banana Cream Pie -- Before Cool Whip and instant pudding, this was how a cream pie was made. If you leave out the bananas, you have vanilla cream pie. If you add 1 cup shredded coconut to milk as it's being heated, you have coconut cream pie.

Banana Cream Pie - (for recipes that call for the cookie crumbs 7 ounces of Graham crackers or any sweet butter biscuits or cookies would do. But to get closer to the real Tennis biscuits you will need to add 1-2 tbsp per 7 ounces of dessicated, toasted coconut. Mix with rest of ingredients as the recipe calls for.)
Banana Cream Pie with Salted Caramel: One word - heaven! I made this for a dinner party and it was gone, wiped clean, almost as soon I put it on the table. I must admit I didn't make the caramel from scratch, per the recipe, but used a good pre-made caramel sauce and added some sea salt. It was utterly delicious and pretty simple to make.
