Textures. Anything good has many different textures. Crunchy, smooth, chewy, cake, soft, hard, fluffy, dense. This Deconstructed Banana Cream Pie dessert doesn’t fall shy of that. A thick creamy pudding, soft whipped cream, gooey salted caramel and crunchy biscuits. This is literally heaven in your mouth. As my friend said “The best thing he has ever tasted” It’s perfect. And it’s an individual dessert so even better. Sharing has never been my strong point when it comes to sweets.

Truth is I had something similar to this out on a girls Brunch one day. There were no Biscoff Cookies used or Salted Carmel, but I do think these are fabulous additions.

It’s perfect for a party, make all the ingredients and then assemble 5 minutes before serving. I always have salted caramel on hand, you should to. I use it all the time for drizzle on top of cheesecakes, whipping in to cookies, stuffing into brownies, you name it salted caramel fits the bill!

    Salted Caramel
  1. In a thick bottomed heavy saucepan cook the sugar on low-medium heat. Using a whisk the sugar frequently. The sugar will begin to turn to an amber color.

  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and whisk in heavy cream.
  4. Mix in salt and let cool.
  5. Once cool pour into an air tight container. A mason jar, plastic container, reused spaghetti sauce jar..etc. Store in fridge.
