I don't think I did but perhaps I mis-measured something because my crust came out horribly. There was too little to cover my standard pie plate with a nice thick crust and what was there did not hold together well. Too bad. My mom used to make banana cream pie with a cornflake crust when I was growing up and it was my favorite. She lost her recipe so I gave this a try. Oh well. Read More

I have been looking for this recipe for years. I love it. I think the mistake made by some is probably that the cornflake measurement is after they are crushed which more than triples the amount of cereal. Thank you so much for posting this. It is one my mother used when I was a child. Read More

Great recipe but I think why many people here have a problem is because in the recipe it calls for 11/2 cups of cornflakes but they mean crushed cornflakes. Hope this helps Read More
