Banofee Pie Cups

Until last week I did not know what a banoffee pie was.  When I saw the ingredients I know I had to try it.  A banoffee pie is actually a pastry with bananas, and toffee from boiled condensed milk also known as dulce de leche baked on a pastry crust or a graham cracker crust.  The name Banofee derived from the words banana and toffee.  Some recipes versions include coffee, others had chocolate.  I decided to omit the coffee and give it a try and do chocolate shavings on top of the whip cream. 

·   1 tin of condensed milk
·   1 9 inch refrigerated pie dough or
·   2 ripe bananas, sliced
·   1 1/2 cups chilled heavy cream
·   Cocoa powder to decorate

1.      To make the toffee boil the unopened tin of condensed milk in water for two and a half hours (this can be done well in advance). Leave to cool.
  1. Bake piecrust according to package directions.  Cool for 20 minutes and then snap up in pieces.
  2. Please pastry pieces in the bottom of pasty cup.
  3. Scoop toffee over the pastry.
  4. Cut bananas into 1/4-inch-thick slices and pile over toffee.
  5. Whip the cream until soft peak stage and dollop over the top of the bananas.
  6. Shave chocolate shavings on top of the cream  and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
