Yesterday was my daughter's 15th birthday. Having just returned from a week in California I wasn't quite prepared for a birthday celebration. On the way to school I asked Claire what kind of cake she wanted that evening and her reply was, "a banana cream pie". Up until now, it's been my other daughter that has requested pie for her birthdays (always lemon merignue). I wasn't at all disappointed with her choice since making a tart is my absolute favorite thing to do, and it's been a very long time since I've made banana cream. I used a crust that I love from Dorie Greenspan's book Paris Sweets and the filling is from a 1995 Sunday New York Times Magazine. Some of us had seconds!
