    This pie is real good but takes 5 hours to make it. The reason is you make your Carmel with Bordens Condense Milk and you have to submerge the can of condense milk in boiling water and boil for 4 hours until it turns to carmel. You do not open the can you just submerge it in boiling water for a total of 4 hours..

    5 to 6 Bananas

    I can Bordens Condense Milk

    I Grahm cracker pie shell

    Cool whip

    Boil the condense milk for 4 hours then remove from water and let cool completely

    Slice the bananas into a bowl and mix in the Carmel you just made

    Put contents into the pie shell

    Cover the pie with Cool Whip

    Place the pie into the frig for 1 hr and let it set up

    Slice and enjoy...

    Great looking recipe!

     Just a suggestion though.

     Check out nestle, La lechera,Dulce de Leche.

     Canned caramel  sold in hispanic markets and i believe that wally world has it.

    I buy it to make flan, but i think it would work fine in your pie and save a WHOLE BUNCH of time.

     If i open a can it looks exactly like what you have in the can.

    Thanks guys I can tell you that it is good..Eman its not the same no matter what other carmel you use it does not taste like the Bordens Condense Milk...I have made that stuff that you are talking about La leche sorry not the same....looks the same but does not taste the same...I know that most people will not try this recipe because of the time factor involved and that is to bad...but hey its a free country and we can do the things that we please and that is the way it should be...I am going to make another one for TG Dinner because I boiled 2 cans ....[​IMG]   By the way you can boil the Bordens Condense Milk another couple of hours and slice the carmel up with a knife and you have bite size carmel candy...

    Wow! Grats! So.... how do you loose 50 lbs. in 4 months eating pie like that? lol

    That's a secret I got to figure out!
     
  12. Well, I made it.  It was a great success!  Everyone liked it.  It was very sweet but not as bad as I thought it would be.  Definitely a keeper and my fiancee has already asked that I make another one!

    Can I safely cook sweetened condensed milk in its can to caramelize it?


    Rating: 76

    At least one cookbook (which was recalled) and some old camping practices suggested cooking an unopened can of sweetened condensed milk in a pan of boiling water to make a sweet custard. This is not a recommended practice and could be hazardous if it exploded. If a recipe calls for caramelized sweetened condensed milk, here is a safe way to do it. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Pour one can of sweetened condensed milk into an 8" glass pie plate. Cover with foil and place in a shallow pan. Fill pan with hot water. Bake one hour or until thick and caramel-colored.

    Just sayin'    [​IMG]

    Nice find Raptor...I will have to give that one a try also...I guess the company needs to make one that is carmel when you buy it....that would be the answer...Thanks again for the heads up. I just was not thinking  [​IMG]

    Roller, morning.... That looks like it has many applications... I like it...  Others have mentioned  "Sweetened Condensed milk" .....

    Would there be a difference in using one over the other ????

    I can cook meats and veggies but this pastry stuff is over my head... I can't even make oatmeal cookies, tried 3 times, they suck....

    That being said, "I think I could make this".... [​IMG]

    Yes Dave this is pretty basic just be sure to keep 1in. of water over the top of the can when boiling it..And also remember that this practice of boiling a sealed can is not recommended by the saftey patrol..I have done it several times with great success...Hope you enjoy the pie...
