What's wrong with this picture?

This is my new Pampered Chef pie pan. What's wrong with it? It has no pie in it. Do you know why? I don't know how to make a pie.

Yes, that's right, the Mamaw who can bake any sweets she can find a recipe for does not know how to make a pie. For years, I've loved to bake and have become pretty well known for someone who can always bring a good dessert to a get-together.

I don't eat pie (except graham cracker pie, which hubby always makes) so therefore I've never learned how to make a good pie.

I need your help dear readers. I want to make a good old-fashioned homemade apple pie for my hubby. Does anybody have a recipe that will guarantee me a good flaky pie crust with a wonderful apple pie filling?

I would love your help on this. Thanks. You can post it here or email me to mamawsplace@gmail.com .

Banana Cream Pie with Meringue

I have fixed this pie dozens of times. I have tweaked the recipe around until it is the easiest for me.

•3/4 cup white sugar
•1/3 cup all purpose flour
•1/4 teaspoon salt
•2 cups milk
•4 egg yolks (beaten) Save the egg whites for the meringue
•2 TBLs butter
•1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
•1 9 inch pie crust, baked
•3 or 4 bananas, sliced

In a saucepan, combine the sugar, flour and the salt. Add the beaten egg yolks to the 2 cups of milk mixing thoroughly. Pour into dry ingredients mixing thoroughly. Turn on medium heat and cook, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and starts to bubble. Be careful not to scorch. Turn off heat. Add butter and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Slice the bananas into the cooled pie shell. Pour the cooled filling over the bananas. Have your oven preheated to 350 degrees.

Fix the meringue. Whip the egg whites on high until they begin to peak. Add 1/3 cup sugar to the egg whites and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Spread the meringue evenly over the filling. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
