Description: A delicious southern version of a classic dessert!

3  Large Eggs
3/4 cup  Granulated Sugar
1/3 cup  All-purposeFflour
1/4 tspn  Salt
3 cups  Whole Milk
1 tspn  Vanilla Extract
1/2 tspn  Banana Flavored Extract (optional)
1/2 tspn  Rum Flavored Extract (optional)
1 box  Nilla Wafers
6  Ripe Bananas
1/2 tsp.  Cream of Tartar

Instructions: Pudding
Separate the egg whites from the yolks, and set whites aside. In the sauce pan over a low heat, whisk 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/3 cup flour, and 1/4 tsp of salt with 3 cups of milk. Whisk in egg yolks until mixture is smooth. Simmer, and use a wooden spoon to stir frequently to avoid burning. Continue cooking until custard is thick, remove from heat and whisk in vanilla and flavored extracts until smooth. Set aside and allow custard to cool, it will thicken more as it sits. Layer the Nilla Wafers in the bottom and around the edge of a 10" cast iron skillet. Slice bananas to cover wafers. Pour the custard on top, and continue to add the ingredients in alternating layers until all of the custard is used.

Beat the egg whites until smooth. Add 1/8 tsp of cream of tartar, increasing speed so the frothy mixture creates peaks. Slowly add 1/4 cup of granulated sugar, and continue beating until stiff peaks from. Spread meringue on top of layered pudding. Using a fork, create peaked swirls in the meringue, or whatever design you prefer. Place the skillet under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, keeping a close eye on it as it can easily burn. Allow peaks and edges to brown like you would a marshmallow.
Remove from oven and allow to cool. Enjoy!
