Dulce de Leche Pie

Another good reason to keep a can of dulce de leche on hand. This recipe is from my sister-in-law, Donna. She lives way over on the other side of the country from me in Washington State. But she can still send some of the best recipes my way. She’ll call me and say, “You-have-GOT-to-make-this-new-recipe-I-tried!” The fun thing is, I rarely have to write these recipes down as she is explaining them to me, they are that simple but pack a tasty punch. This pie is one of those really simple and extremely delicious and elegant recipes. Beware as this pie will feed about a hundred people as it is so rich that you will only need slivers. Just a sliv is what we say in our house, just a sliv.

Dulce de Leche Pie
one prepared Oreo crust
one can dulce de leche
2 cups heavy cream whipped with 1 t. vanilla and 2 T. powdered sugar
8 mini Heath Bars, crushed

Gently and evenly spread dulce de leche on the bottom of the pie crust. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with Heath Bars. Serves 8-10. Very rich and luscious!

    Thanks for the tip! Olive oil is OK to use, right?

    I had no idea what dulce de leche was until I checked it out on Wikipedia. What an amazing-looking pie!

    Karen- thanks for the nice comment. Glad you like the pictures. Some people spray for height, like Jersey girls (me!), or some just add looks of whipped cream!

    Kevin- Thanks! Your blog is great I just book marked you!

    When you said, “simple” I wasn’t expecting it to be THAT simple. Now this is a recipe that everyone should know about! I am impressed not only by the simplicity but also by your beautiful pictures. Fantastic job all around. Bravo!

    a sliv, you say? i have what seems to be an unearthly ability to consume large amounts of rich and/or sweet foods, so i might require more than a sliv. this is simply an awesome recipe, and the end result is stunning to behold! 🙂

    bay area foodie- Thanks, I am enjoying photography. Right now I am using a Canon PowerShot A610. It is about 3 years old and I probably only know about 10% of what this little baby can do. You would think I would read the little book that came with it!

    Grace- Thanks my SIL gives me some fun and easy recipes alot. I can only eat a sliv but give me a pound of spaghetti and I can do some serious damage!

    I have won 2 pie contests with this recipe. Alas, I’ve still never tasted the pie as it is always gone before I get to it.
