BANANA CREAM PIE (Dulce de Leche) from scratch

Nancy J. Patrykus


This wonderful sounding recipe was cut out of a magazine.
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.
