#153_Banana Caramel Cream Pie

For this dessert I use the graham cracker crust made from scratch.
here for the crust recipe.

This is a recycled concept from 2 recipes:
Banana Cream Pie recipe #31, (click here) and the
Banoffee Pie recipe #15
0 (click here)

For the cream filling,
I used the recipe for the Banana Cream Pie
with a little bit of twist
by adding store-bought caramel topping.
The outcome is a lot better than the
fe Pie and the Banana Cream Pie.

(Option 1)
Using store-bought individual serving
graham cracker crusts
such as the picture above
is a convenient way to serve
this dessert as you can eliminate a lot of mess.

(Option 2)
or use the store-bought 9-inch graham cracker pie
crusts and slice them into wedges.

Spread half a jar of caramel topping evenly on the crust;
refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

I recommend using Mrs. Richarson's caramel topping,
if you have access to it.
I'm not into brands but I find this is the best kind
as the others are thinner in consistency
and tend to be runny when spread on the pie.

Cream Pie Filling:

1 large (5.1 oz) instant Lemon Pudding mix
1 large box (4 envelopes) Dream Whip
3 cups cold fresh milk
Combine these 3 ingredients in a bowl and whip until thick, but of spreadable consistency.
(If you have a food processor use it. It is the best for the job).

You can slice up some bananas and combine with the cream filling, (optional)

Slice bananas into disks and arrange them on top of the caramel topping.
Spread cream filling on top of the bananas.
Top with cool whip or whipped heavy cream.

Drizzle caramel topping on top

Place the whole pan on a serving platter and unlock the spring lock.
Spring form pan has spring lock on the side so you can get your cakes
or pies out easily without any mess.

Enjoy a slice!

1. To prevent the bananas from getting dark, sprinkle some Ever Fresh fruit protector found in the canning section of your grocery store.
2. If you don't have Cool Whip, you can use 1 pint of heavy cream and whip it with 1/2 cup white sugar.
