Female: So for me like pumpkin pie is the center of the universe.
Male: This goes to show me that America can’t wait for dessert.
Male: We are going to make a pumpkin banana meringue pie. This is absolutely delicious.
So the pumpkin is been there for about 20 minutes. All right, it’s not fully cooked yet. All right, so they're soft. They're kind of hot. And what we want to do is take six bananas with the skins and everything. I'm going to put this onto the sheet pan and we’re going to roast the bananas until the bananas get really super soft.
Okay, so these then go back into the oven with another ten minutes. All right guys, so check this out. It’s been about 35 minutes. The pumpkin is really, really hot. But it’s also super soft and all the bananas. Well, take a look at these guys as well. They roast inside the -- jacket. So we’re not going to loose any of the delicious banana flavor and they are super soft.
Okay, so we got pumpkin our banana in our food processor. Now what we’re going to do is add the bits of the pie that’s really going to give us some flavors, some richness and also hold it together once its cook and cooled. All right, so we got three eggs. I'm going to drop that in. we've got some sugar. We've got some cinnamon. We got two tablespoons of butter. And then also some freshly grated nutmeg.
So I'm just going to grate this with a microplane. This is kind of do sort of falls apart like snowflakes. All right, looking good. I've also got a little bit of heavy cream to this. All right, and we’re going to carry all these down. All right, and we’ll put this right into our pie shell and then we’re going to smooth everything out one into the other. So we've got a hot sheet pan. We got a hot oven. Our pie is going to go right on top just like that, 15 minutes later, it’s the best pie you’ve ever tasted..
Okay guys, so take a look at this. The pie is out of the oven. Now if you can see the whole thing starts to settle like custard. The crust has a beautiful golden shine from the egg white. Now what we’re going to do is put a meringue topping on top of that which is going to be really easy to put together. And we’re going to add our four egg whites in a bowl. All right, we've got powdered sugar. It’s also has cornstarch. So it’s going to be very silky texture and also a little bit of cream of tartar for stability. And then a little pinch of salt.
Now what we’re going to do is just take an old fashioned cake mixture here. We’re going to bloom this together until its start to double and volume and we’re not looking for a stiff. We’re looking for a medium peak. we’re going to put that on top of the pie once its cools down a little bit.
So we’re going to take our meringue. All right, we’re going to put this right on top of our pie. Now it looks beautiful. And then, what we’re going to do is kind of do an old fashioned trick. Take a spoon, okay. And I'm just going to start to pull this up in little peaks. And we’re going to pop this into the oven, one of the broilers for about 7 to 10 minutes. And we’re looking good.
All right guys, take a look at this. After the pie comes out of the broiler, you will like cool just for a second and take a look at this. The marshmallow on top the meringue has a great caramelized look to it. This is sensational.
