Banoffee Pie

Yes, I realize that this is the third pie recipe in a row, but Banoffee pie is probably my favorite pie in the world! (..and I just used the word “pie” three times in one sentence πŸ˜…)

It is SO delicious and there are so many different textures and layers. We have the buttery biscuit crumb base, then the perfect food combination, which is bananas + caramel (dulce de leche) and to top it all off, there is the fluffy and creamy mascarpone cheese frosting 😍

To make this even better, this is a no-bake dessert, which anyone can do! It only takes a few simple steps to make this amazing treat. The hardest part of this recipe is waiting for the banoffee pie to chill in the fridge 😜
