Banoffee Pie

Crust.   5 I loved the flavor and texture. This is what I want in this kind of crust firm.
Filling.  4. Good flavor and texture a little rich for me.  I had it cold the next day           which is best like  you said.

Overall  4. Topping could use a little more flavor like vanilla?

Crust:    5  Like a yummy cookie.
Filling:  5  Sweet
Overall: 5  I don’t think I am going to share my slice with my husband.
All I want for my birthday is this pie!

Crust:   4 Crust had good texture. Soft but not soggy.
Filling: 4 Filling  was great and I really like the banana with it all.  I ate it all!  I liked   the Grey texture of the filling with the banana and whip cream. Great!
Overall: 4  Mmmm really good!!!  

Great pie
Crust:   4 little hard but good
Filling:  5 with banana compote 
Overall: 5
It may be impossible to make crust easier to cut but it would be nice otherwise great.

Okay, here’s my critique…
Crust: 3 The crust on the other hand was uneven in texture. The bottom part of it was so thin that there’s nothing left to hold the filling when you slice and scoop it. It tasted real good crust for that particular pie.3
Filling: 4 The filling tasted good, didn’t have that separated taste of the two ingredients.
Overall: 3.5  The pie didn’t get that much syrupy like in the bottom. If the bottom of the crust is even with side I’ll dive into it with 4****

Okay I have a cold 🤧 so my tasters may be a bit off; if you have cold and your body craves chicken soup, this just may not be the pie for you.
Crust:   2 – I can’t put my finger on it, maybe it’s a salty flavor.
Filling:  3  The toffee and the bananas are carrying all of the sweetness, and the toffee is “over the top” sweet. The whipped cream is unsweetened, and thank goodness; because the pie would have been too sweet overall.
Overall flavor gets a 2 – the constituents are so different that bite by bite I got too much of one or another, and never a blend of all the flavors.

Crust: 5
Filling: 5/2
Overall Flavor:4
The dense sweet crust and caramel layer was great; would have made a great holiday square cookie. The pudding layer was too subtle for me to detect the flavor of bananas and it lost its shape (cut too soon?) And the whipped cream layer seemed like it needed vanilla and sugar.

Crust:   4   Graham cracker with slight zest. One of my favorites.
Filling: 4  This was hard because I like the toffee part but would of liked more bananas. So the filling lacked something that would give it the ultimate 5 rating.
Overall:4  Unique flavor with the sweetest flavor at the bottom of the pie radiating upward to the least sweetest.


About Tammy

Blogging was not around the first 30 years of my life. Back in the old days, blogging review about something. Usually the person writing this review was a professional in their field. Since than blogging has changed how we share and learn information. Today bloggers are not necessarily professionals. They are usually ordinary people which want to share what they were impressed by or that have changed their lives. With trepidation I consulted my friends about being a blogger. Their first question was invariably, why? At first, I could not articulate why. Finally, I realize it was three events that happened to me within a month that led me to create this project. Please indulge me, and follow my train of thought as I attempt to connect the dots.create your own world. We've created a set of roleplaying First, over the summer I participated in a role play site. Within this site, there are hundreds of plots you can write for. Once you choose a plot you create a character profile. Then with other writers you collaborate on a storyline that supports the plot. I love this process. Not only did my writing improve, but fills a void I have when I’m not writing. Unfortunately, the story lines never last long enough and I’m left wanting more to write. Secondly, my husband believes we live on this vast farm. Through the years he has cultivate an enormous dwarf orchard which provides not only enough produce for us but also for ALL our neighbors, friends and family. The reality is we live on a normal size lot in the middle of a city. Nevertheless, we pick buckets and buckets of pears, cherries, apples, kiwis, plums and figs. Sadly, when I make pies from our abundance the only people around to eat it….is us. We honestly do not need the extra calories so I considered not baking any more pies. Than this project developed where I could share my pies. Thirdly, for the 3rd or 4th time I’ve watched the movie “Julie and Julia”. I have always marvel at how Julie makes herself this challenge of cooking every recipe (524 to be exact) from Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking." cook book all in one year. No matter her obstacles she preservers. For years I have secretly admired Julie. I’ve often wish I had the courage to do what she did. So because I don’t have enough to do in my life. Why not start a blog about something? After bouncing what seem like a million ideas I came up with this crazy project. A blog about pies. Tammy’s Pie Lab Sigh…… so my blog is about pies, pies and more pies. Here are my plans. I have picked the most unusually dessert pies I can find. As you can see this is not just a blog but also an experiment. I am going to cook one pie every week for a year. I have eight pie tasters that will critique each pie. To prevent any preconceived notions of how the pie should taste. I will withhold the pie’s name until after it is critique. Then I will post the history, the recipe, and the critiques of the pie. In addition, there will be some experiments, countless websites to explore and everything you wanted to know about pies and more.
