  • 22 - peanut butter sandwich cookies
  • 1/2 cups - lightly salted dry-roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 cups - butter, melted
  • 1/2 cups - granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cups - cornstarch
  • 2 cups - half and half
  • 4 - large egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons - butter
  • 2 tablespoons - creamy peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons - vanilla extract, divided
  • 2 - medium bananas
  • 2 cups - heavy cream
  • 1/2 cups - powdered sugar
  • - halved peanut butter sandwich cookies, chopped lightly salted dry-roasted peanuts, optional, for garnish
  • Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 350°. Process cookies and peanuts in a food processor about 1 minute or until finely chopped. Stir together cookie mixture and melted butter. Press crumb mixture on bottom, up sides, and onto lip of a lightly greased 9-inch pie plate.

    2. Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to a wire rack, and cool completely (about 30 minutes).

    3. Whisk together granulated sugar and cornstarch in a large, heavy saucepan. Whisk together half-and-half and egg yolks in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk half-and-half mixture into sugar mixture, and bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Boil, whisking constantly, 1 minute; remove from heat.

    4. Stir butter, peanut butter, and 1 tsp. vanilla into sugar mixture. Place heavy-duty plastic wrap directly on warm custard (to prevent a film from forming), and cool 30 minutes.

    5. Cut bananas into 1/2-inch-thick slices; place in a single layer on bottom of crust, covering bottom completely. Spoon custard mixture over bananas; cover and chill 4 to 48 hours.

    6. Beat cream at high speed with an electric mixer until foamy; gradually add powdered sugar and remaining 1 tsp. vanilla, beating until soft peaks form. Top pie with whipped cream mixture. Serve immediately, or chill up to 4 hours.
