How to Make Banana Brûlée Pumpkin Pie

by Jennifer Pilcher

This is a simple enhancement to standard pumpkin pie.

Supplies

  • 1 pumpkin pie
  • 1 banana
  • Brown sugar
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Bake a pie according to instructions on a can of pumpkin.

    Step 2

    By the way, you can always use milk, even skim milk, in place of the evaporated milk. Reduces calories and I can't tell the difference.

    Step 3

    It's ready. (I used skim milk.)

    Step 4

    Slice the pie. (Or apply this topping to a whole pie. For a whole pie, toss bananas in lemon juice first so they will last longer without turning brown.)

    Step 5

    Top with sliced bananas.

    Step 6

    Top with brown sugar, as much as you like.

    Step 7

    Broil for about 1 minute until slightly burned on top. You can also use a kitchen torch. Brûlée should be crisp and burned enough that you can tap on it with a fork.

    Step 8

    Enjoy!
