Creamed Bananas in Puffed Pastry Shells {Recipe}

I really tried hard to think of a sexier name for this dessert.  It appears to be anything BUT just plain old creamed bananas – which could sound a lot like something they’d serve you, straw included, at an old folks home so you don’t lose your dentures.  After a lot of thinking, eating, eating, drinking coffee, thinking, and more eating I decided it could stay the same.  I came up short, and full.  Plus, maybe you guys need to know that this is a denture-friendly recipe?  So here you have it – Creamed Bananas in Puffed Pastry Shells, a recipe from America’s Rocky Mountain Lodge & Cabin in gorgeous Cascade, CO.  An adorable B&B nestled in the snow capped Rocky Mountains.  Creamed Bananas in Puffed Pastry Shells

3 ripe (not overripe) bananas

1 Tablespoon flour
4 eggs yolks
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
2 scoops vanilla ice cream
Directions:Bake pastry shells as directed on the box. Remove the top and inside. (You can save the tops and top the pastries with them if you’d like.) Allow to cool. Place pastries on 5 dessert plates. Chop bananas into bite-sized pieces and add then to cream sauce (below). Pour into pastry shells, allowing some to spill out over the edge onto the plate. You can place a top decoratively on some of the fallen filling or on the top if you’d like. Drizzle with chocolate syrup and serve immediately.Cream Sauce: Combine flour, egg yolks, and vanilla in bowl; set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring whipping cream and sugar to a boil; remove from heat. Stir a small amount of hot cream into egg yolk mixture; return all to the pan, stirring constantly.
