I wasn’t intending to blog about this as well it’s so easy I can hardly call it a recipe but so many people loved them (either those who ate them or saw my Instagram pics) that I felt it was only fair to share 😉
A few weeks back I bought quite a few boxes of sweet pastry shells as they were short date ( B.B end of Sept) and therefore ridiculously cheap without really any idea of what I was going to do with them – today inspiration hit at the supermarket when I saw bananas at a bargain price and I decided to make mini Banoffee pies for my daughters tea party.
If you were to have a dinner party and serve these up for dessert I assure you they would go down well. My sister declared them as the best cake/pies she’s ever eaten. You could easily make the shortcrust pastry or even do a type of cheesecake biscuit base which I’m sure I will try next time I make them. I won’t give exact quantities here as I just kinda threw it all together.
You will need:
Pastry shells (or shortcrust pastry tarts blind baked and cooled)
1 tin of carnation caramel
1tbsp of icing sugar
Cadburys flake ( broken up into teeny pieces)
Bananas sliced thinly
Whip your cream with the icing sugar until thick.
Spoon caramel into each case/shell then top with sliced bananas, a dollop of cream and bits of flake
Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve.
Told you it was easy peasy.
