*DIRECTIONS*

Combine sugar, flour, and salt in top of a double boiler; stir in milk. Bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cook, stirring constantly, 10 to 12 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Beat egg yolks until thick and lemon colored. Gradually stir about one-fourth of hot mixture into yolks; add to remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Remove from heat, and gently stir in peanut butter and vanilla.

Layer one-fourth of vanilla wafers in a 3-quart casserole; top with one-third of bananas. Pour one-third of filling over bananas. Repeat layers twice, ending with remaining vanilla wafers. Spread top with whipped topping, if desired. Chill. Yields 8 to 10 servings.
