Caramel Pie



I first tasted caramel pie from one of the local fast food joints. Here is my very own recipe of the tasty treat. Enjoy!!

Ingredients:
  • 1 – 9” Graham Cracker Pie Shell
  • 1 small can sweetened condensed milk (for caramel)
  • 1 – 8 oz package cream cheese
  • Frozen cool whip (thawed)
  • ½ cup condensed milk (for whipped cream mixture)
  • 1 firm, ripe banana (sliced)
  • ½ cup finely chopped nuts
  • 2 tbsp toasted coconut flakes

Directions:

To make the caramel, remove label and immerse unopened can of condensed milk in pot of boiling water. 

Boil for about 2 to 3 hours, ensuring that water does not dry out. 

Allow can to cool before opening.

Line the bottom of pie shell with banana slices.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, cool whip and ½ cup sweetened condensed milk. 

Spread half of the mixture evenly onto the pie crust and place in the freezer to harden.

Open the can of caramel and empty contents into a bowl (be sure to set aside some of the caramel to drizzle on top of your pie). 

Mix in the chopped nuts and coconut flakes and spread mixture on the first cool whip layer. Allow to set in the refrigerator.

Spread remaining cool whip mixture on top of caramel.

Drizzle with preserved caramel and refrigerate for about an hour or place in freezer for half an hour before serving.
