Ok, so, what's Thanksgiving (in the Southern states anyway) without some homemade banana pudding.
1/2 c sugar
1/3 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 c milk
2 egg yolks(reserve whites)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 box Nilla wafers
4-6 bananas - sliced
In a double boiler, mix sugar, flour, and salt. Stir in egg yolks. Stir in milk gradually so no lumps. Add vanilla.
Stir continually over heat until pudding is thick enough to hold its shape.
Layer in pan. Cookies, bananas, pudding.
Make a meringue with the whites, sugar, vanilla and a pinch of Cream of Tartar. Spread the meringue on top of the layered pudding.
Bake at 320F until browned.
