Instructions Of Banoffee (British)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ° F (177 ° C). If you’re new to full-grain Graham crackers, you can use a food processor or blender to grind them. Or mash them in a zipped top bag with a rolling pin.
  2. Combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and granulated sugar in a medium bowl until combined. The mixture will be thick, coarse and sandy. Press the mixture into the bottom and lightly on the sides of a 9-inch pie dish.
  3. Make sure it is tight and compact. Use the bottom of a flat measuring cup to squeeze it firmly. Bake the crust for 15-16 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 15 minutes (and up to 2 days) before adding the layers. Meanwhile, make the whipped cream. (The next step.) For the whipped cream: using a hand mixer or a stand mixer equipped with a whisk, whip the heavy cream, sugar and vanilla extract at medium-high speed until formation average peaks, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Medium peaks lie between soft / loose peaks and rigid peaks and are the perfect consistency for garnish and piping on desserts.
  6. Spread the dulce de leche on the crust. Arrange the banana slices in 1-2 layers on the dulce de leche, then spread the whipped cream on top.
  7. Refrigerate the open pie for at least 2 hours and up to 1 day.
  8. Garnish with garnishes before serving, if desired.
  9. Cover and keep leftover pie in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
