This is the first pie anything I’ve ever made! If you’ve ever seen the film Love Actually, you’ll remember that Juliet tried to bribe her new husband’s best friend for their wedding video with a slice of banoffee pie. I always wondered what it was and finally got around to looking it up.
Juliet, how could you think you have terrible taste in pie when this pie is so scrumptious?!
That shortbread crust, those banana slices, the dulce de leche! I have to admit that my main motivation for making this pie was the crust. I might be addicted to shortbread. I can’t buy shortbread cookies because I will eat them.
I will eat all of them.
Thank you Always Order Dessert for this lovely recipe. You can find it here!
I chose the “safe” way. Heat up your oven to 425 degrees. Pour your sweetened condensed milk into a shallow pan (I used an 8×8). Don’t make a mess like me. If you do make a mess, be sure to slurp some off your hands.
Press it into a pie dish or tart pan and poke some holes in the bottom. My tart pan got bashed in a little during the move, so I got to use my Pyrex pie dish for the first time ever! Put this in the freezer for about fifteen minutes and then bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees. How convenient, your oven is ready to go!
Quick story! I broke Pyrex one time. I was running through the hall in my house and I smacked it with my flailing arm. I am so talented in my clumsiness.
Rather than a single layer of thickly cut bananas, I went with a few layers of of thin slices. While I made the whipped cream topping, I put this in the freezer so the bananas wouldn’t slide around so much when I cut into the pie.
