Homemade Banana Crunch Pudding

5 egg yolks

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/2 cup sugar

2 teaspoons sugar

Salt

2 cups milk

3 tablespoons banana liqueur

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon melted butter

2 teaspoons vanilla

15 vanilla wafer cookies, coarsely ground

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

2 bananas, coarsely chopped

Whipped cream, optional

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine crushed wafers with cinnamon, 2 teaspoons of sugar, a pinch of salt, and tablespoon of melted butter. Mix well then spread evenly on the prepared pan. Bake crumbles for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool while making pudding. With a whisk, mix the egg yolks with 1/2 cup sugar. Place the milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Gradually whisk the milk into the egg yolk mixture. Return the pudding to the sauce pan, adding the banana liqueur and continue to cook over medium heat until the pudding is thick. This will take about 3 minutes and you must whisk the entire time. Remove from the heat and whisk in the 2 tablespoons of butter and the vanilla. Place in a bowl and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Be sure to cover the bowl with plastic wrap. To serve, divide the chopped banana between 6 serving dishes or fancy glasses. Top the bananas with the pudding and sprinkle with the crumbles and serve topped with whipped cream if desired.
