I have no problem to prepare the pie crust but i'm not sure how to prepare the filling, after checked through in few blogs, I saw Elin did this before, thus I requested the recipe from her. Thanks Elin for kind sharing.  The normal banana cream pie is serve with whipping cream, but I replaced the cream with ice cream since the weather here is hot.
