BANANA CREAM PIE (Dulce de Leche) from scratch
Nancy J. Patrykus
Dated May 4,2007.
It is a wonderful pie, a real gourmet tasting recipe.
With the extra time it takes in cooking the home-made pudding and the added fresh bananas.
It becomes a real winner.
I had the pleasure of tasting a slice of this pie, and I highly recommend it to all.
Cook, checking water level and adding water as necessary.
Stir milk occasionally and cook until it is very thick and golden brown, about 2-1/2 hours.
NO box pudding mix for this pie!!!
Cool on a wire rack.
Slice 2 bananas, spread half of warm dulce de leche over the pie crust,
Then The sliced bananas.
Then the rest of the Dulce de Leche.
then the sliced bananas.
Chill until cold, at least 2 hours.
Whip using a mixer on high speed,until soft peaks form.
Spread evenly over pie.
Slice remaining banana and use to garnish pie..
Cut pie into wedges and serve.
** Kitchen tip: To slice cleanly.
If the filling sticks to the knife as you slice,
dip the blade into HOT WATER and wipe it clean before cutting each cut.
