- 4-5 bananas
- A pinch each of cinnamon and salt
- A few drops of vanilla
Method
  1. make a thick dough by combining the flour and cream; add the cinnamon, salt, vanilla and juice of a lemon; 
  2. roll the dough out with a rolling pin; cut out 2 layers like pie crusts;
  3. line a pie plate with one layer;
  4. top with the sliced bananas;
  5. cover with the top layer and crimp the edges to seal;
