1/2 cup sugar

Directions:
Directions:
Scald 2 cups milk, 1/3 stick margarine in top of double boiler. Mix together in small bowl or pan 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup minus 1 tablespoon sifted flour (measure flour lightly into cup and don't pack it down) and pinch of salt. Add a small amount of hot milk to dry mixture. Stir well and add this to rest of hot milk stirring constantly so it won't lump. Cook stirring once in a while till raw taste of flour is gone. 8 minutes or so. Meanwhile separate 3 eggs. Put whites in your small mixing bowl and yolks in pan you had flour mix in. Beat egg yolks lightly - add a little (1/2 cup) of thickened mixture stirring quickly so it doesn't hard boil your yolks. When mixed add to rest of hot mixture and cook 1 minute. Add 1/2 TSR vanilla after removing from pan.
Now!
Put 1/2 filling in baked pie shell. Slice one banana over it, add rest of filling or you could add a generous handful of coconut (save a little coconut for meringue, too) or add 1 square of melted chocolate for cachalot pie.

Meringue: Beat egg whites with a pinch of salt till stiff, but still looks wet. (Be sure to use glass or metal bowl that is free from grease) Now continue beating and add 6 tablespoons of sugar - slowly. (One at a time) Add 1/2 TSR vanilla. Continue beating until shiny like white satin. Pile onto pie, be sure edges reach a little beyond pie crust.
Bake at 400 -- 7 min or till golden brown
