English Banoffe

Banoffe is a traditional English pie. Rich and creamy, this pie has three major parts: toffee, bananas, and whipped cream. The pie itself is very easy to make and is full of traditional English flavors.

Full time 1 1/2 hours (unless you need to make toffee)
Makes 1 9" pie

The needs-

For Crust:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup fine sugar

For Pie:
2 bananas, sliced
14 oz. toffee filling (store bought or homemade, see bottom for link to toffee recipe)
1 cup whipping cream

The know-

In a large bowl combine all crust ingredients and mix until well blended.

Pour mixture into a 9" pie shell and pat down, up edges, until you have a nice even crust.

Allow crust to rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Pour toffee into crust and allow it to rest in refrigerator for 20 minutes.

Top with sliced bananas.

Top with whipped cream and smooth out evenly.

Chill in refrigerator 30 minutes prior to serving. For best texture allow pie to chill longer.

Cheers!
