I didn’t have dulce de leche when I tried this recipe and went with the substitution make-your-own that was suggested. Mine just didn’t set up, so I had more of a Banoffee mess, but the flavor was absolutely fantastic. For a pie that slices, I’d recommend that you use some purchased dulce de leche or a tried and true recipe (I have had success in the past with the oven baked method).
4 oz unsalted butter, melted
½ package (the 11 oz size) of Nilla Wafers cookies
1 (14-oz or 13.4 oz) can Dulce de Leche
1 pint heavy cream (or Cool Whip)
Caramel sauce or grated chocolate to decorate top of pie, optional
1. Crush the cookies into fine crumbs. Transfer to a bowl and stir in melted butter. Press buttered crumbs into bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie plate. Chill crust in refrigerator for one hour.
2. Pour Dulce de Leche into the crust. Chill for one hour until the caramel is firm.
3. Slice the bananas and place them in a single layer on top of the caramel. Whip the cream and spoon over the Dulce de Leche and bananas. Drizzle top with caramel sauce, if you like.
