This year I was in charge of dessert for Christmas Eve at my parent's house. I wanted to do something delicious and decadent. I found my answer at Our Best Bites. I've made a bunch of recipes from this website before for dinners, but this was my first dessert one.
The recipe I used was: Dulce de Leche Banana Toffee Pie.
Luckily I looked at this recipe the night before because I didn't realize that I needed the sweetened condensed milk to make dulce de leche. If I would have known, I would have just bought dulce de leche. BUT it was 10pm at night and I was too lazy to go to the store....again.
So I learned how to make dulce de leche. And surprisingly it was easier than I thought. I also used a recipe from Our Best Bites. You can find it here.
I finished making the rest of the pie the rest day. So many delicious ingredients went into this pie so I knew the end result would be amazing. That night my suspicions were confirmed: delicious!
My family loved it. I couldn't help but eat two slices myself. And the funny part? My mom got me Our Best Bites recipe book as a Christmas gift. She knows me too well. Thanks Mom!
