  4. Bake just the crust in the oven for 25-30 minutes until it starts to turn light brown.

Pie Filling

  1. While the dough is in the oven, mix the sweetened condensed milk, 1/2 cup butter, brown sugar, and syrup over medium heat and stir continuously.

  2. Bring it to a gentle boil which takes upwards of 10 minutes to get it to a gentle boil and cook at a gentle boil for approximately 7 minutes, stirring continuously. If you don’t stir continuously with heat resistant rubber cooking spatula, it will burn on the bottom. It will turn a light caramel color and smell wonderful at this stage. After 7 minutes you can remove it from heat.

  3. When the crust is done baking, you simply pour the ingredients which just finished boiling gently into the pie crust. Let the pie cool off in the refrigerator. 

Recipe Notes

  • The pie tastes so yummy on it's own but you can garnish it with the fresh banana slices, grated chocolate and whipped cream.
  • It is best to let the pie cool off over night in the refrigerator but we have already eaten it warm because we couldn't wait.
