                         Birthdays were always celebrated in the Breton house. Seven children, but no
               special request. Not till our youngest daughter  decide she didn't want cake,
               instead a Birthday Pie!.  Her favorite .One I usually made around the holidays,
               but,  I made  an exception. This Pie remains her favorite, and I still make it every
               time she comes  home to Maine. She and her family live in Georgia.

                                                 BANANA  FUDGE  PIE

            1 pie shell [ ready made or your own recipe]
            1/3 cup of chocolate bits [ I used Ghirardelli, but you can use any brand]
            1  8 oz. Cool Whip, thawed
            2 eggs, beaten
            1/4 cup of sugar
            1 medium banana

            Heat oven to 350*
            Melt chocolate bits [ I use a microwave safe measuring cup, 2 cup size  ]
            Stir into melted bits 1 cup of the Cool Whip, eggs and sugar. Mix well.
            Pour into pie shell. Bake 25-30 minutes, [will look like brownies]
            When cooled, top with sliced banana and remaining  Cool Whip.
            Refrigerate till flavors meld and you are ready to serve [ at least 1 hour]

           The first time I made this pie, I used a store brand chocolate bits.
         . The chocolate does  taste better using a better grade of chocolate.

           Easy to make, hope you will give it a try.

           That is all for today  friend , this is Jenny
