Banana Cream Pie

Today I decided to make banana cream pie. I haven't had banana cream pie for quite a long time. And I've never made it before by myself. I think it turned out alright. I think I like Lemon Meringue so much that it's throwing me off with the look of lemon, but the taste of banana. :)

3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups milk
3 egg yolks
2 Tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
2-3 bananas
6 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp salt
4 egg whites

Mix sugar, flour, salt, milk and egg yolks well; cook until full boil, stirring often. Boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add butter and vanilla. Stir until butter is melted. Cool slightly. Slice bananas into already baked pie shell. Pour mixture over top. Top with Meringue.
MERINGUE: Cook sugar, cornstarch, water and salt until clear. Beat four egg whites until frothy. Add cooked mixture. Beat until stiff. Spread on pie. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until tops of meringue peaks are browned. Cool and then refrigerate.
