EVER. It’s seriously incredible. The graham cracker crust is one of the greatest things that has ever happened to America but then pour in dulce de leche, fresh bananas, and the creamiest, dreamiest pudding mixture and you are seriously in for an amazing treat. It totally can hold it’s own next to a classic apple pie, or a no bake pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving dinner.

Dulce de leche(pronounced “DOOL say day LAY chay”) is a Spanish term for a thick caramel sauce popular in Latin America.

What Does Dulce De Leche Taste Like?

I would say that it’s fairly similar to caramel, but it is a taste to it’s own…Very Tasty

It’s in between caramel & butterscotch. It’s very sweet too.

This pie is not as difficult as other pies too. No cooking necessary, other than the pie crust.

Ingredients for dulce de leche banana cream pie. There are containers of dulce de leche, pudding, milk, cream, sugar, cream cheese and bananas.

The only thing that is truly important to remember is to follow the pudding section instructions carefully. Don’t skip mixing the milk and pudding separate as it wont set up right otherwise.

This is a pretty fabulous step in the pie making, spread almost an entire can of dulce over the top of the bananas. If you can’t find a can of dulce de leche in the baking or hispanic section of your store just make your own by boiling a can of sweetened condensed milk. You can google tutorials. Reserve just a little as a decorative topping.

So, you fill your pie crust with bananas, top with dulce de leche and then top it with “Not Yo Mama’s Banana Pudding” from Paula Deen. Oh my. It’s wonderful. There’s truly nothing else I can say. Just, go make it, tomorrow.

How Do You Store Dulce De Leche Banana Cream Pie?

Freshly made Dulce De Leche Banana Cream Pie will keep for about 3 to 4 days in the fridge; refrigerate covered loosely with aluminum foil or plastic wrap.

But, let’s be honest. This pie is so good, there will not be any left over to store!

Description

This creamy, fluffy, delicious Dulce De Leche Banana Cream Pie is probably one of our absolute most favorite pie recipes ever.

Ingredients 

Graham Cracker Pie Crust

  • 1 3/4 Cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Butter, melted

For the Filling

  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 Box French Vanilla Instant Pudding, 3.4 oz
  • 4 Ounces Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1/2 Can Sweetened Condensed milk, 14 oz
  • 1/2 Container Cool Whip, 6 oz, defrosted or 1 1/2 cups fresh whipped cream with a little powdered sugar beaten until soft peaks form.
  • 2 Bananas, sliced
  • 1 Can Dulce De Leche

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients for the crust in a bowl.
    1 3/4 Cups Graham Cracker Crumbs, 1/3 Cup Sugar, 1/4 teaspoon Salt, 1/2 Cup Butter
  • Press into a deep dish 9" pie dish and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven to cool.
  • In a large bowl, combine the pudding and milk and set aside.
    1 Cup Milk, 1 Box French Vanilla Instant Pudding
  • In another bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth, and then add the sweetened condensed milk and beat again until smooth.
    4 Ounces Cream Cheese, 1/2 Can Sweetened Condensed milk

  • Add 1/3 of the cool whip to the bowl, and gently fold it into everything.
