Mini Banoffee Pies

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!

3

To start, grab your pre-made pie crust and grease two mini cupcake trays. The pies end up SO little and CUTE!

4

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!

5

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

6

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!!

7

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.

8

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?

  • Does the toffee become rock hard after you pop them in the fridge? Cause mine did, not sure why…

  • These look DELICIOUS! I’ll be making these soon. Maybe for my classroom of 4th & 5th graders!

    Hey Kerry,
    I always find my ready-made pie crust around the biscuits and other “canned bread” items. They usually come in a box, so they don’t look like the shape of pie crust. Just let it get to room temperature then roll it out! 🙂

  • Oh my goodness! I am in love, they are so mini and amazing! I also love that you used metric measurements also. : )
    Thanks for sharing

    Kerry, try the frozen foods section for remade pastry.

  • YUM! These are definitely heading up my to-make list! It would be interesting to try this with different fillings. Chocolate pudding anyone?

  • These are absolutely adorable! There’s a little restaurant in LA I go to often that sells mini pies. They’re so much more practical! Not that I couldn’t eat a full one, I just shouldn’t. 🙂

  • Banana and toffee is such a delicious combo! These little pies look sooooo good!

  • They look WONDERFUL. I’ve tried to find ready made pastry here in the USA but none of the grocery stores seem to hold it. Any advice girls? It could just be that I get stuck in the cheese aisle for so long I’m blinded by everything else. Anyone?

  • I don’t usually like bananas, but I WILL eat a dozen or more of those! *mm nom nom*

  • yum. banoffee. first time (and actually only) i had one i was in ireland on my sixteenth birthday. the people in the pub put a candle in it and the whole pub sang me happy birthday. pretty cool experience. fond memories of banoffee.

  • Yummy! Those are the fanciest little pies ever! :] I really want to make some now, they’d be so cute for a little brunch. Thanks for sharing!! xx

  • MMMMmmmmmm. I love these! My hubby’s favorite is banana cream pie. I will have to make these for him soon! So adorable.
