Caramel Banana Pie

We had friends over recently for dinner, so I was looking for something impressive and/or really delicious to serve for dessert. I wanted it to be something you just don’t see and/or eat very often. That’s when this delicious pie came to mind. I’ve made it before a few times, and it’s a favorite of mine – it just makes the whole dessert out of this world delicious. In fact, I confess that as I was making this pie, I just might have eaten a few spoonfuls of the caramel sauce along the way. It is soooo good!!

This dessert was the perfect choice for our friends – they loved it! Someone even asked if there was rum in it. You just gotta try this. I promise you will love it

Caramel Banana PieButter, bourbon and brown sugar give this banana cream pie its yummy caramel flavor. If you want to knock their socks off, this is the dessert to make!
