This pie won the grand finale in The Villages pie contest. Before I decide what pie to make to enter a contest, I make them all and take slices around to all my neighbors, they love it! This little gem of a pie got rave reviews and took me to the top. You can make your own dulce de leche like I did but the canned version is good and makes for a quick and easy dessert. Enjoy!
1Heat oven to 450 degrees. Roll out your favorite pie crust and transfer to 9" pie plate. Be careful not to stretch dough. Fold and roll edge under, even with plate: flute edge. Prick bottom and side of dough generously with fork. Bake 9-12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
2Spoon contents of can of dulce de leche into center of cooled crust; gently spread to edge and halfway up sides. Thinly slice banana; arrange over dulce de leche. In chilled, medium bowl, beat whipping cream and powdered sugar with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Spread over bananas.
3In small resealable freezer plastic bag, place chocolate hips ad oil, seal bag. Microwave on high 30 seconds; knead bag to mix melted chips and unmelted chips. Microwave 15-30 seconds longer or until all chips are melted and smooth. Snip off tiny corner of bag. Squeeze bag to pipe melted chocolate mixture over whipped cream. Store pie in refrigerator.
