Banana Cream Pie

This is Grandma Gentle's recipe. 
I just added a little salt, almond extract, and half-n-half.
Makes a 9" Pie
1 graham cracker crust, cooled
1 c milk
1 c half-n-half
3 egg yolks
3 T cornstarch
3/4 c sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp almond extract
2 T unsalted butter
whipped cream, for serving

Mix 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a medium size saucepan.  Add milk and half-n-half whisking to prevent lumps.  Mix egg yolks with remaining 1/4 cup sugar.  Bring milk to a boil, stirring constantly.  Once thickened, slowly add to egg yolks.  Return yolks to saucepan and cook over medium heat for a couple more minutes.  Remove from stove top.  Add vanilla, extract, and butter.  Chill. 

Once custard is room temp, slice bananas and place on crust.  Pour custard over the top.  Chill pie.  Serve with whipped cream.
