Banana Cream Pie

2/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk, warmed
3 egg yolks
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 bananas, sliced
1 (9-inch) baked pie shell
Sweetened whipped cream

Combine cornstarch, sugar and salt in top of double boiler. Gradually whisk in milk. Cook over simmering water, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens, about 15 minutes. Mixture must boil to thicken.

Lightly beat egg yolks in small bowl. Slowly add about 1/4 cup hot mixture to egg yolks and mix well. Stir egg yolks back into milk mixture in double boiler and cook 5 minutes. Let cool slightly, then stir in butter and vanilla until butter melts.

Add banana slices. Pour into cooled baked pie shell and chill until set, about 1 1/2 hours.

Top with sweetened whipped cream. Serves six.
