Mini Banoffee Pie

When we returned back to the states from our two and a half years living in Ireland, we brought back a few new family traditions.  One of them was the start of an annual St. Patrick’s Day party for our close friends.  It is a way for us to celebrate and share our love of our former home as well as share a little bit of Irish reality in a season of misconceptions and inaccurate Irish stereotypes.

And along with spending quality time with our friends, watching all the kids splash together in the pool as the South Florida weather turns warm again and doing little St. Patrick’s Day crafts, my favorite part of the now yearly event is making a special Irish Feast of our favorite meals from our time abroad: Shepherd’s Pie, Fish Stew, Irish Brown Bread and to top it off, Banoffee Pie!

Banoffee Pie is something I’d never heard of before relocating to Dublin but it’s something I’ve come to love over the years.  It’s a simple graham cracker style crust (traditionally using Digestive biscuits) layered with toffee, sliced bananas and topped with whipped cream (Bananas + Toffee = Banoffee pie!)  What isn’t to love about that?  Plus it’s super simple to make!Mini Banoffee Pie Recipe, St. Patrick's Day Irish Dessert
