Here's another yummy sweet treat from Talia Christine. I have been in love with mini pies ever since Emma and I made Mini Peach Pies earlier this spring. So I was so so excited when Talia sent us this delicious looking recipe for banana + toffee mini pies-YUM!
Hi, everyone! I'm Talia Christine! I'm a wife, a crafter, and a soon-to-be mother! I love making and baking things. You know, rolling up your sleeves and doing things yourself for that special touch!
Today the Sweet Treat recipe I want to share with you is a super favorite of mine.
Mini Banoffee Pies.
What is a banoffee pie?
BANana +tOFFEE (caramel)= Banoffee
It's a quick and easy recipe that uses a pre-made pie crust and a stove top filling!
To start, grab your pre-made pie crust and grease two mini cupcake trays. The pies end up SO little and CUTE!
Dust a little flour and roll out the crust. You'll want to roll the dough out to around 2-3 mm thickness, but really it doesn't matter. Go ahead and play around with it and see what works for you!
Cut out 2 1/2"-3" rounds of the dough and place them into the molds of the pan. Prick the base of the mini pie crusts with a fork to prevent them from bubbling up in the oven. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and preheat the oven to 400F/200C
Bake mini crusts for 10-12 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before placing them on a wire rack to cool. While the crusts are cooling, we make the best part, the caramel filling!!
Melt 2 ounces of butter over low heat and add 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved the add 1 cup of sweetened condensed milk. That's it! Keep stirring and cooking until the mixture thickens and caramelizes! This takes about 5-10 minutes.
Fill the cases with the caramel while it is still warm, then pop them in the fridge for an hour. I couldn't wait that long, personally. I waited maaaaybe 25 minutes.
Top them with a generous slice of banana and some whipped cream! If you want to get fancy you can dust them with some cocoa powder. Ta-da!! GORGEOUS little mini pies that were so easy!
Eat a dozen of them. I did. They're little so you can, right?
