If you thought banana cream pie was too rich and sweet for you, this banana cream pie with coffee caramel will make you a convert! Sweet pastry cream filling is lightened up with whipped cream and layered with fresh bananas. Coffee-infused caramel sauce and a crunchy chocolate cookie crust provide a toasty contrast.
Crush the Famous Wafers to a fine powder, stir in the melted butter, press into the bottom of a pie dish, and bake for 5 minutes at 350 degrees.
Place the heavy cream, butter, coffee grounds, vanilla, and salt in a small pot, and bring to a simmer.
Place the sugar, flour, and salt in a medium pot and gradually whisk in the milk and vanilla.
Layer the crust alternately with bananas, caramel, and pastry cream.
