How to make it

  • For the topping, stir ¼ cup of sugar together with the pecans in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Continue stirring gently until sugar has melted and the pecans have caramelized to a nice light brown (do not overcook or the sugar will burn and the flavor will be unpleasant).
  • Carefully transfer nuts onto a cutting board to cool, spreading them out to a single layer so they don't cool in "clumps".
  • Note: do not try to cool them on waxed paper - I did this the first time and they melted right into the waxed paper and I ended up with waxed paper coated pecans!
  • Allow nuts to cool completely - you can then gently break up any large clumps of nuts that may have stuck together in the cooling process.
  • For the crust, combine graham cracker crumbs with sugar, and then add melted butter until well moistened.
  • Press into bottom of 10 inch deep dish pie plate.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.
  • Cool crust completely.
  • For filling, combine thawed Cool Whip, pudding, and sour cream with a wire whisk.
  • Place half of the filling mixture in the bottom of the cooled crust.
  • Cover filling layer with sliced bananas.
  • Spread the rest of the filling mixture on top of the bananas.
  • Cover well and keep refrigerated.
  • At serving, sprinkle each slice with some of the caramelized pecans.

    Krum!!! I told my mom that I was making a drunken pumpkin pie one year for Thanksgiving and I didn't have parchment paper for the blind baking of the crust....I used wax paper and the wax melted into my crust and I didn't notice until we tried to cut the cooled pie and the filling slid off the crust. I died of embarassment, right in front of Mema, Nana and all the great cooks before me, my pie crust was a teflon surface! LOL, I'd forgotten all about that til I read your warning. Love bananas and this looks great for the next pot luck I'm going too, mind you, I keep lots of parchment in my kitchen these days.
