Preheat over to 375 F
Combine graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar and melted better until thoroughly mixed
press into a 9″ pie plate (*tip: use a measuring cup to push the graham crackers up the side of the pie plate and to flatten bottom. Makes a perfect pie crust every time)
place in oven and bake 8-10 minutes
Remove and let cool completely before using.
Slice bananas on a diagonal and sprinkle with lemon juice to avoid browning. Place half of the bananas on the cooled crust
Pour prepared Dulce de Leche sauce on top of the bananas (recipe below)
Place the remaining bananas on top of the sauce.
Cover with whipped cream or cool whip
Garnish with chocolate shavings. (*tip: take a block of good semi sweet chocolate and using a vegetable peeler shave chocolate over the top of the pie )
Once done make sure you cool in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight so its ready the next day.
You can do this one of two ways.
How to make Dulce de Leche Sauce:
The first way and they way I did it is to poke 2 small holes with a can opener in the top of a can of sweetened condensed milk (DO NOT TAKE THE TOP OFF) and place in a sauce pan that is taller than the can of milk. Fill the pan with hot water 3/4 of the way up the can. Avoid letting water run over the top of the can.
Let come to a slow boil and boil for 3-4 hours (the longer you boil the darker and thicker it will be)
Make sure you keep water in the pan as it will evaporate.
Once done take the can out of water and take the top off. Be careful, it is going to be very hot so handle with care.
Pour into a bowl and whisk until smooth. (the milk will most likely be clumpy and darker towards the bottom but once whisked it will be beautiful)
Let cool completely before using.
The second way to do it and it is much shorter but more involving.
Preheat over to 425 F
Open the can of sweetened condensed milk and pour into a pie plate or a loaf pan. Place that pan in a larger pan. Pour HOT water up the side of the pan to where the milk line will be in the smaller pan.
Place in the over and bake for 1 1/2 hours. Every 20 minutes go in and stir the milk.
Remove from oven once browned and cool completely before using.
