This Caramel Banana Cream Pie recipe from Aimee over at Like Mother Like Daughter has a delicious graham cracker crust, followed by a caramel layer, topped by banana pudding AND whipped cream for a delicious twist on traditional banana cream pie!

I’ve mentioned before that banana cream pie is my favorite ever! So when I knew I needed to make a pie for Pi Day (3.14) I knew that a twist on banana cream pie would be the perfect solution! Adding caramel to the pie takes it to the next level without adding too much difficulty.

I started with my simple banana cream pie recipe. A quick and buttery homemade graham cracker crust, topped with banana slices, caramel, and vanilla banana pudding, and whipped cream for good measure. Drizzle each slice with a little more caramel for decoration if desired.
