Bananas + Toffee + British touch= Banoffee Pie


If you haven’t heard of banoffee pie, you need to take some time to get to know it! It’s a fantastic British dessert that combines a tea cookie crust with a rich toffee filling, bananas and fresh whipped cream!

Since I came back from studying abroad in England, I have longed to try banoffee pie. I actually didn’t ever eat any while I was across the pond, but I did get to enjoy some delicious sweets. You know what I’m talking about if you have ever had sticky toffee pudding! The Brits really know how to make a cake or pie and smother it in a rich pudding or sauce that makes it so deliciously sticky sweet.
They happened to be featuring British desserts on Saveur.com (http://www.saveur.com/, a fantastic foodie magazine), and I could almost squeal when I saw the banoffee pie recipe (http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Banoffee-Pie-Classic)!
