Banana and Toffee Gives you Banoffee

This is a great pie to make in Korea the ingredients a rather cheap and available all year round . You can easily make this pie for under 8000 won. It was invented in England in the 70s. Although the original recipe called for a pastry pie base I feel the biscuit base is just as tasty and is so much easier to make .

Banoffee is hugely popular in Europe so much so that Cadburys made a banoffee pie flavoured chocolate bar . Wonderful for a birthday party or just looking to impress your friends.
No cooking involved, no oven needed.

1 Can of condensed milk
5 bananas
2 packets of digestive biscuits
1 cup of butter 2 cups of cream

To Make.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
Add the unopened can of condensed milk to the water.
Reduce to a simmer .
Simmer for 3 hours ,always checking to see there is plenty of water.
Warning if the water boils dry the can will explode.
Smash the digestive biscuits and add melted butter.
Pack tightly into a pie tin. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Place a layer of chopped bananas on top of the biscuit layer.
Allow condensed milk to cool.
Spread condensed milk (toffee ) over bananas .
Whip cream (adding a drop of Tia Maria if you like )
Top the bananas and toffee with whipped cream.
Decorate with some chocolate shavings or chocolate syrup.

Watch your friends faces light up with joy as they eat.

This looks soooo good - my only question is what is a digestive biscuit...from what I know of "real" English - cookie and biscuit are the same but I don't know what a digestive cookie is. I'm so baffled that I want to make sure I read it right.
