The best pie that I ever had!

Last week, I had dinner at Emeril's Chophouse in Orlando.  It was wonderful..............my son then insisted on ordering their banana cream pie for me.  I thought that he was crazy.............$10.00 for a piece of pie?  Anyway, the pie was served to me, and not only was it the size of 2 pieces  of pie; it was absolutely delicious, as well as beautiful.  I have never been thrilled about a piece of pie before, except the blueberry pie at Helen's in Maine.  As hard as this might be for you to believe, this pie was worth every penny!

    Greymo-
    I wouldn't even flinch paying $10.00 for that pie.  It looks spectacular!  It looks like a graham cracker crust, with chocolate ganache shavings on top.

    Lord. Have. Mercy.  I'm gonna have to try that on my next trip to Orlando.  The only problem is his restaurant also has crispy guava and cream cheese dumplings which look and sound amazing.  Maybe I'll just skip dinner...

    I should have taken pictures, but we just ate too fast!
    On our way back from a college drop off we stopped for lunch in Rantoul IL at a small place called Butcher Boy Burgers.
    I had a very respectable pulled pork, and Frank had a nice and crunchy Cod sandwich. but oh!
    The pie!
    I had a blueberry crumble and he had a coconut custard, both to die for!
    The crusts were so light and flaky that breeze would have blown them away!
    The fruit had the perfect balance of sweet and tart. Topped with crispy sweet cookie topping-
    The coconut custard was smooth and perfect, topped with mountains of meringue.
    It was so good we brought home a slice of blueberry and brownie for the kids.
    The pies are made by the owner a nice gentleman whose name I didn't get-
    from his mom's recipe.
    we will be back- pictures next time for sure.

    What a thing of beauty!  Is that fresh whipped cream on top?  Please tell me YES!

    I wouldn't expect anything but fresh whipped cream from Emeril!
    And yes, that certainly is a spectacular piece of pie!!

    They also serve it at Emeril's in NOLA and I'm so sorry I passed on the chance to try it when I ate there.  It's  considered to be one of his signature dishes not to be missed, and of course I did...

    Looks like they used my favorite recipe, minus the graham cracker crust.
