Pi – Day

Pi-Day or Shall I say Pie-Day !

3.14 is known as Pi-Day by math geeks and others who like to eat pie.  Being somone who likes to bake and eat I thought there was no better day than today to share on of my favourite recipes.

Enjoy!

Banoffe Pie

This is one of my favourite desserts very popular in UK but not so popular here in the states.

For this delicious pie you will need :

Either a Store bought Graham Cracker Pie Crust – 9in

Or

1 1/2 cups of Graham Cracker Crumbs

10 tablespoons of butter melted

Mix the Graham Cracker Crumbs with the butter and press into a 9 inch pie dish and bake for 5-8 minutes at 350 degrees.

To make the toffee filling you will need:

2 cans (14oz) of  sweetened condensed milk

You need to bring a saucepan of water to the boil and boil the cans in the water for 1 1/2 hours. DO NOT peirce the cans at all. Just place athem in and make sure they do not boil dry. This will make the toffee.

When the toffee has cooled open and pour one can in to the cooled pie crust.

Top with 3 large Bananas sliced, pour 2nd can of toffee on the top of the Bananas.

Then top this with 1 1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream whipped with the one teaspoon of vanilla and 1/3 cup of confectioners sugar.

Top with your favourite chocolate grated… I like to use Cadbury’s Dairy Milk or Green and Blacks Milk Chocolate

Deliciousness in a Pie !
