Paula Deen Banoffee Pie — CARRIE SHERIDAN

Chef’s Note

“a delicious British pie – banana cream pie WITH sticky toffee… on a crumb or nut crumb crust… what’s not to LOVE?!can use just 1 can of sweetened condensed milk. can use 4 bananas. the SAVEUR recipe adds dark brown sugar to only one can of the sweetened condensed milk to make the toffee filling.Can add just a touch of bourbon – to either the whipped cream or the toffee filling.also can add just a splash of amaretto…”
