To make the pie crust
Graham Cracker powdered- 1 1/2 cup
Butter- 1 stick
( For the regular pie crust check recipe here)
For the filling
Dulce de leache-1 tin
Heavy cream- 1 1/2 cup
Confectionery sugar- 1/3 cup
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Put this mixture on a greased pie dish ( 8 inch pan) and using your hand or the back of a spoon pat and spread the mixture evenly on the base of the pan and towards the sides of the pan. Bake this at 350 degree F for 8-10 minutes, till the edges change color to golden brown. Take out from he oven and allow this to cool down completely.
To make the whipped cream. Chill the bowl and the whisk in fridge for some time. Now into this cold bowl pour 1 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream. Beat this in a low speed for one minute or till it thicken, add sugar and vanilla essence and continue beating. Increase the speed to high and beat till the cream turns into soft stiff peaks. Cover and keep in fridge till it is time to assemble the pie.
To assemble the pie, spread the dulce de leache in an even layer and then place sliced bananas. Spread the whipped cream ( I used piping bag) and then decorate with chocolate shaving. Chill in the refrigerator for two to three hours. Slice and serve.
Note: You can also make toffee at home by boiling condensed milk. Place sealed condensed milk tin in a five quart pan and cover with water.Make sure that the tin is completely submerged under water. Boil this in medium heat for 2- 21/2 hours. Add more water during the heating process and always keep the tin submerged under water. After 2 1/2 hours remove the tin from the boiling water and allow to cool down completely ( the content will be really hot and is not safe to open at this stage). When complete cool open the tin with a can opener. Use this in place of dulce de leche.
Hope you will all enjoy!
