Claire Saffitz Makes Banana Cream Tart | Dessert Person
I have a very few reference points when it comes to banana cream pie, having only tasted it once or twice. When I set out to develop my own version, this provided to be a good thing because I felt free to interpret it any way I liked. Here I make more or a tart than a pie and eliminate the layer of sliced bananas (which quickly take on an unappealing color and texture). Follow along as Claire Saffitz Makes a delicious Banana-Sesame Cream Tart that features a craveable combination of bananas and sour cream.

Banana-Sesame Cream Tart

6 ounces (170g) Nilla wafers or graham crackers (about 46 wafers or 11 crackers)
5 tablespoons unsalted butter (2.5 oz / 71g), melted and cooled
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds, plus more for garnish
2 tablespoons plus 1/3 cup sugar (3.2oz / 92g)
A pinch plus 1/2 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt or 1/4 teaspoon Morton kosher salt
3 tablespoons cornstarch
4 large egg yolks (2.1 oz / 60g)
1 2/3 cups plus 3/4 cup heavy cream (20.5 oz / 580g), chilled
