The Most Requested Pie at the Cozy Kitchen

It's hard to believe summer is coming to a close...but we took advantage of beautiful weather and took the boat out... I couldn't help but think of Smiling Sally hosting Blue Monday and A Southern Daydreamer hosting Outdoor Wednesday when we passed this blue boat !

The end of summer means a lot of birthdays in our house...and it all starts with this.

The most requested pie in our Cozy Kitchen...and I just have to share it with all my Foodie Friday friends !{hosted by the wonderful Designs by Gollum!}

Lucious Caramel Banana Pie {The Southern Living Cookbook}

14 oz Sweetened condensed milk

2- 3 Bananas

1-(9-inch) graham cracker crust

1 c Whipping cream

1/4 c Powdered sugar; sifted

1 - 2 English toffee-flavored candy (I use Heath bars), chopped

Pour sweetened condensed milk into an 8-inch pieplate. Cover pieplate with aluminum foil. Pour about 1/4-inch hot water in a larger shallow pan. Place covered pieplate in pan. Bake at 425 degrees for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until condensed milk is thick and caramel colored (add hot water to pan as needed).
Remove foil when done, and set aside. Cut bananas crosswise into 1/8-inch slices, and place on crust. Spread caramelized milk over bananas.

Cool for at least 30 minutes. Beat whipping cream until foamy; gradually add powdered sugar, beating until soft peaks form.
Spread over caramel layer.
Sprinkle with crumbled candy.

Chill at least 3 hours or overnight before . Enjoy !
