Have you ever heard of this things call Banofee Pie?
The first time I heard of it I was watching “The Chew” and I saw Carla make it. In case you have no idea what I am talking about or are curious as to what is in it let’s just say that its a sugar pie that tastes like bananas. There is nothing healthy about that pie. It does look good though. You know I have been make some delicious no bake cheese cakes lately. I made the Oreo Cheesecake and the Peanut Butter Brownie Cheesecake. Now I’m going add one more in the mix and that is this Banoffee Cheesecake that you are looking at in that picture above this paragraph. Now you have three no bake cheesecakes you can make for the holidays.
Originally this was going to be a Banana Pudding Cheesecake but I thought adding toffee on top would kick it up a notch. Then I thought how it I should just call it “Banoffee Cheesecake”. Makes sense, right? I know Banana Pudding is made with Vanilla Wafers but since I’ve made Paula Deen’s “Not Yo Mama’s Banana Pudding” I can’t turn back to regular boring vanilla wafers. There is something about the butteriness of the shortbread cookie that gives the pudding some contrast and depth of flavor. It’s like a wonderful surprise. So! The holidays are coming up and people are starting to collect their recipes and get some ideas. These cakes are desserts your family will most certainly love for sure.
NOTE: If you are making them to travel to your family I recommend keep them in the freezer until you leave so they can hold during travel and don’t melt or fall as much.
