I remember hearing about Banoffee Pie decades ago – but what I didn’t know then was just how EASY this is to make. And it’s soooo Caramelly Toffee Banana goodness. A shortbread crust, a good thick layer of Dulce de Leche, bananas and whipping cream touched with coffee. All those wasted years…
Another pie? Why not!? Because
you can never have too much pie I already made my Fave Pumpkin Pie last week, and then a knockout Caramel Creme Pumpkin Pie. So for actual Thanksgiving? A Two-Layer Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie. The bottom layer is a lush cream cheese concoction & the top, a classic pumpkin pie layer. The best part of the pie, though, has to be the Dulce de Leche Whipped Cream that can be plopped or piped over the pie and a little drizzle of that caramelly Dulce de Leche topping. That Dulce de Leche whipped cream, though, literally stole the show.
For a while, Dulce de Leche was virtually unknown in much of the States until it became all the rage years ago. If you’ve never had it, Dulce de Leche is rich, spoonable caramelly goodness and you buy it, usually in a can. Dulce de Leche can be used in all kinds of ways, but here Dulce de Leche is spread on top of a cheesecake base for these delish Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Bars. Oh, yes, please! Finish these with a sprinkle of Fleur de Sel to add a bit of spark. Umhmm!
I think there are two classes of people. Those who are wild crazy about the caramelly goodness that is Dulce de Leche and those who have never tried it! There’s no doubt, though, that it can be kind of pricey at the store, and so here’s your solution, my Homemade Slow Cooker Dulce de Leche.
