1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
Combine crumbs, brown sugar and butter in a pie plate. Press firmly into plate. Bake in 350F oven for 8 minutes. Cool before adding fillings.
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup whipping cream
In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Reduce to low and add brown sugar. Simmer on low for 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until sugar and butter are completely incorporated.
Add the whipping cream and let cook (on low), for another 5 minutes. Stirring constantly. Once done, turn off heat and allow the caramel sauce to start to thicken.
Feel free to use whatever version of vanilla pudding that you prefer. Because I was doing this on the fly, I only had Jello Instant Vanilla Pudding in the cupboard, so that's what I used!
I don't use any measurements when I make whipping cream, just a little of this, a lot of that.
Vanilla (to taste)
Sugar (to taste)
Pour whipping cream into deep metal bowl. Whip with electric mixer on high until the cream starts to thicken. Add a little vanilla and sugar. Continue whipping until you attain your desired consistency.
Note: Be sure to put your deep metal bowl and beaters into the fridge or freezer for at least 15 minutes prior to whipping the cream. Just makes the job that much easier!
And finally, put it all together!!
Line cooled pie crust with cut bananas (you'll probably use 1.5-2 bananas, depending on the size of your pie plate). Drizzle the cooling caramel sauce over the bananas. Pour/spoon the vanilla pudding on top of the bananas and caramel sauce. Top with whipped cream. Store in fridge. Enjoy!
Hubby had two pieces for dessert, that's always a good sign! It was a nice, light dessert and easy to make!
