I found this easy Banana Pie on Pinterest. And when I saw it had a can of homemade caramel in it, I was IN!
It didn’t disappoint, and we gobbled it up in no time!

- FOR THE CRUST:
- 1-½ cup Graham Cracker Crumbs
- ⅓ cups Sugar
- 6 Tablespoons Melted Butter
- FOR THE FILLING:
- 3 whole Large Bananas, Sliced (more If You Desire)
- 14 ounces, weight Sweetened, Condensed Milk
- 2 cups Cool Whip
To make the Graham Cracker Crust:
Combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar. Stir in melted butter. Press into 8-9 inch pie plate. Bake at 375* for 6-9 minutes. Cool.
For the homemade caramel sauce:
Remove the label on the condensed milk and submerge the unopened can in a large stockpot of water. Cover and boil for 2 1/2 hours. WARNING: be sure to keep the can covered with water AT ALL TIMES! (I had to add water every 20 or so minutes.) When 2 and 1/2 hours have passed, remove pot from heat. You just made caramel! YUM!
Slice bananas into cooled crust and pour still warm caramel over it. Add cool whip and refrigerate at least an hour to set.
