Basic Cream Pie Filling Recipe @pinch

This basic cream pie filling is a wonderful base for any pie. All by itself, it's a deliciously thick and creamy vanilla custard. We love the suggestions Sena gives for add-ins to adjust the flavors of the filling. We decided to add a layer of bananas and top with fresh whipped cream. It was fabulous! Using a pre-made crust makes this a cream pie anyone can make. Cream pies are a big hit in our family, as well as our friends. This recipe is a basic filling for all cream pies such as coconut, chocolate, pineapple, etc. It is also good for fillings in cakes and desserts. This basic filling is so simple and used in all my cream pies. You can add the egg yolks with all the other ingredients, and use a whipping tool while stirring with no worry of curdling. I top the pies with Marshmallow Creme Meringue (posted on JAP).
