Banana Custard Pie: For happy little kid in me

 Banana and custard, you can be sure that it will be delicious every times that they are together.

I think it has an image of children's dessert, hehe, so I fell like a little kid each time that I eat it. This time, they come together in a form of pie, and it is very easy to make (Ok, I use word "easy" a lot on my blog, because that what I love my baking to be ^^).  The base is Oreo cookies with pecan nut, actually you can use other kinds of nut too, but for me a slightly bitterness from pecan is what I love. You need to bake it just to set them together, and after this stage no oven needed.
The custard in this recipe set with gelatin and cornstarch, using cornstarch has other benefit than setting the custard, it reduces the chance of the custard to become a scramble egg too ^^.  For the topping, if you love a lot of whipped cream you can go for it by increase the amount of the whipping cream to 250-300 g and icing sugar will be 25-30 g , and the topping will be sky high.
This pie is great when it cool from the fridge, I suggest put it in the plate and eat it while watching animate, you will be a happy kid like me, haha.
