I think I mentioned recently that we moved to Louisiana 4 years ago in January. What I didn’t tell you was that our move here was part of a much bigger life transition, both in ways that we expected (we meant it when we said we’d go just about anywhere when my husband graduated from college) and ways that we didn’t expect (the months leading up to his graduation were much more tumultuous and stressful than we ever anticipated). On top of that, there were so many general unknowns: the economy was crashing and my husband and I had no idea how that would affect us (other than the fact that one day we were qualified for a home loan and a week later we weren’t because the housing market had fallen apart). Once we’d had a few months to get settled in our new location, reality started setting in: we were far from our friends and family. Real life was expensive. We had a baby and a toddler in a completely unfamiliar place. The economy was getting worse. I felt so lost.

Sara and I had talked about starting a cooking blog for awhile. Cooking blogs were in their very baby stages and we had very modest expectations for what we hoped it would be–mostly a place to organize our recipes for ourselves and share our recipes with our friends and families. A fun hobby. Something to keep us busy. So four years ago tomorrow, we launched our humble little blog with a few of our favorite recipes and hoped that maybe someone would come and read them.

Imagine our surprise when, after a month or so, we started getting comments from people we didn’t know. It was kind of terrifying and exhilarating and fun all at once. We changed our look, we changed our name, we changed our look a few more times. We learned as we went along and suddenly…we had all these readers, all these friends, people who actually kind of cared about our recipes and our stories and the things we were sharing. And, slowly, I started finding myself again.

We get lots of emails and comments that bring us so much happiness (don’t get me wrong, we get a lot that make us want to write a book about crazy people, too!), from the little things like finally showing up your mother-in-law with your homemade dinner rolls to stories so emotional and personal that we feel like it’s an undeserved honor to be considered a part of them. But we rarely get to genuinely thank you guys for what you’ve done for us. We could take pictures and write recipes until we went crazy, but if there was no one reading them, there wouldn’t be any point in it. Thank you for taking this wild ride with us, for letting us tell you our stories and for helping us re-discover who we are. I think I can speak for both of us when I say that this has been one of the greatest, most unexpected blessings in our lives in so many ways and we don’t have the words to thank you.

So I’ll try to do it with pie. Naughty, naughty pie that should only be eaten once a year.

You’ll need a packaged chocolate cookie crust (think a graham cracker crust, only made with Oreos), bananas, sweetened condensed milk, whipping cream, brown sugar, powdered sugar, cream cheese, and toffee chocolate bars (like Heath) or chocolate-covered toffee bits.

Using one can of sweetened condensed milk,

prepare the Dulce de Leche according to these directions.

Yes, I know this picture has two cans–although math was never my subject, I am a fairly competent counter. But I doubled the recipe for evil purposes.

When the Dulce de Leche has cooked, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool slightly. Spread it over the bottom and up the sides of the cookie crust.

If my Dulce de Leche looks a little…clumpy, that’s because it is. When you look at the instructions and they say that it takes about an hour for the Dulce de Leche to cook, it may not be in your best interest to use that hour to take a nap, even though you’re six months pregnant and tired and you were up half the night with allergy-ridden children. It’s okay. It was hidden under layers of awesomeness and still tasted fabulous.

Cut your bananas into 1/4″ slices and lay them on top of the Dulce de Leche…

Sprinkle about 1/2 cup of crushed chocolate toffee bits on top of the bananas and set it aside.

In a medium bowl with electric beaters, mix together the cream cheese and brown sugar until light and fluffy. In a large bowl, beat the whipping cream and powdered sugar together until medium peaks form. Add the cream cheese and mix until well-combined, light, and fluffy.

Gently spread the whipped cream mixture over the toffee bits and then sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of toffee bits. Chill for several hours before serving.

Pin It

Edited to add: Apparently, everyone else in the world calls this Banoffee Pie. That’s what I get for living under a rock. :)

    You guys are loved because you are REAL. Who of us doesn’t, at 6 mos. pregnant (or even NOT pregnant) steal those precious opportunities to nap when we can? I love seeing a clumpy Dulce de Leche…and reading your “it’s okay…don’t worry” comment. It’s sort of an analogie for life…our lives…”it’s okay…don’t worry…the bad is hidden under layers of awesome greatness”. Thanks, Best Bites!

      Yes, this. You’ve seriously done an amazing job here. Congratulations on all your success, Happy Blogiversary, and most of all, thank you for sharing tips, tricks, procedures and RECIPES that have enriched my family’s food life and my cooking experience. I’ve started to sound like a broken record when I get compliments on food, treats, and gifts: “Yeah, I got this from OBB, too.” Love it. And I squealed when I saw the pie recipe. Now I’m jut lookin for an excuse….

    Happy Anniversary!! I can only hope my blog will be like this one someday. Your blog is what inspired me to start my own… I read every single post & love every minute of it. Keep doing what you’re doing!!

    Hannah says:

    Wow. That looks decadent and delicious. Did you know that chocolate animal crackers make fantastic pie crusts? They taste just like oreo wafers but don’t cost as much. We’ve used them to make chocolate crusts, to top ice-cream, and sometimes just to dip in chocolate.

    Congrats and Happy Anniversary!! This is fabulous website. I have shared your site with sooo many that asked “where did you find this???”. Your stories are fun and always makes me smile and the recipes and endless ideas – need I say more…

    This seems very familiar to Banoffee Pie. Was that an inspiration for this? That is one of my favorite English desserts ever. Unfortunately, here in the states, we can’t really get our hands on the amazingness that is double cream. Thanks for posting this! Congrats on 4 years!!! Love your blog :)

    This is hands-down my favorite food blog. I brag about you guys to everybody when I talk about recipes and cooking. I think both of you are wonderful cooks/bakers, but I also love your stories too. Thanks for sharing them every week. Happy Birthday!

    Becca says:

    So *that’s* why I love this blog so much…We share a birthday! :o)

    I agree with whomever said that the reason y’all are so well-liked is that you are “real”. It feels like you both are a friend or sister and it’s comfortable. Not to mention that all your recipes are fantastic but realistic to make at the same time. Keep up the great work and I know I’ll keep coming back for more! Here’s to many more years, recipes, and cookbooks!!

    I found your blog a couple of months ago and it has been such a blessing! I have prepared so many wonderful meals and desserts because of you both. My family and I are very grateful for all of the new recipes! I have especially loved your beef stew, lemon scones, chicken alfredo bake, fudge and last night I made Sara’s tuna noddle casserole. Everything has been totally delicious! Thank you so much! My mom loves Banoffee Pie, so I’m going to make this for her!

    Oh my! I’m 7 months pregnant myself, and all I’ve been craving is sweets. But not candy. I want cakes and cookies and pies. This looks amazing! I kind of laughed at the link on how to make the carmel. When I was in YW, a sister from our ward from Argentina came and taught us how to make a jelly roll dessert filled with Dulce De Leche. And she taught us to make it using the simmering the can of milk in boiling water for 3 hours method. Nice. I’ll have to try this method with the pie.

    Ladies,
    Happy Birthday! I have been following you for about 1.5 years now and I love everything that you do! As I was finishing with the kids’ bedtime routine last night, I started thinking about how nice it would be to have an app for my iphone and ipad from you, so that when I’m at the store and need an ingredient and can’t remember what, I can bring the recipe up quickly. Also, cooking would be awesome, I’d never have to print recipes. I would pay for that!! Do you have that already?

    This is a fun spin on Banoffee pie. I’ll have to try your version next time I make it! Banoffee pie is a graham cracker crust, caramelized sweetened condensed milk, bananas, with whipped cream on top.

    • 22.1

      I had literally never heard of banoffee pie before today, hahaha! I’d eaten it, just never heard it called that. Apparently I live under a rock.

      • Patti says:

        I hope that the rock you’ve been living under doesn’t have the same friends involved there as what you experienced last week with the sewer guy.
        I’ve been with you since your name was The Daily Bite, and have loved you since I watched you work your magic at Macey’s in American Fork.
        Happy Birthday/Anniversary, and thanks for the pie! Love you!!!

    Happy Birthday! I use your cook book and/or blog at least once a week (some weeks a lot more) and my family thanks you for the yummy food they eat. And this pie? Oh, my goodness…can’t wait for a reason to whip this up – I think being nearly 8 months pregnant is a good enough reason :)

    I am so going to make this next month for Girl’s Night Out! It will be at my NEW house, so the theme is make a NEW recipe.

    By the way, Happy Bloggy Birthday! My husband got me your cookbook for Christmas and I’ve already tried over a dozen recipes from it and EVERY one has been a HUGE hit with all five of us. That means you are awesome — or my kids are not picky eaters. I think I’ll go with the first option there.

    Thanks! Keep up the spectacularness that is your cooking (and I don’t care if that isn’t a word).

I have really appreciated your recipes and all the little extras you don’t find on other food blogs…like all the how-to posts and practical advice in every recipe…the questions that most of us have, but don’t want to ask, for fear of looking dumb in the kitchen (that’s me!). Love your blog and thanks for all the effort you put into it!

    Everytime I use one of your recipes, you gain a new fan or two. I am still getting requests from people I gave your peppermint popcorn to this last Christmas. I enjoy reading your down-to-earth comments. I must admit I browse the desserts about three times as much as the dinners, but that’s okay, right? This pie looks delicious. I think I’ll make one for my neighbor who came over and plowed my driveway last night at 11:00 PM. I think he deserves something special.

    Tish says:

    I’m might be thinking ahead of myself but will the cooking time be the same for the Dulce De Leche if you use 2 cans of the Sweetned Condensed Milk?

    Happy 4th Birthday and thank you for sharing your recipes and ideas.

    • 36.1

      It really depends on your oven. I’d definitely check it after an hour, but it could take a little longer. You will pretty much have to add more water to the larger pan, though (not that I’m speaking from ANY kind of firsthand experience here…I don’t KNOW how my Dulce de Leche got gloopy, haha!)

  37. 37
    Sara says:

    This pie looks yummy! I think I will try to make it next week on pi day (you know, pi is 3.14 and next Wednesday is March 14, 3.14). We are having a pie party for pi day and I think this pie will be perfect for dessert. (and your chicken pot pie for dinner) Thanks!

  38. 38
    Patti says:

    Kate, did you double the sweetened condensed milk for this recipe or just to have extra deliciousness on hand? And, if you didn’t have chocolate covered toffee bits, but only regular toffee bits, would it be best to use mini chocolate chips or shaved Hershey bar for a substitution?

    • 38.1

      I just made extra to pack in school lunches, so I only ended up using 1 can in the pie. I would probably use shaved chocolate bar (if you can’t find actual toffee candy bars to break up yourself)–they’ll melt in your mouth better. :)

    Tammy K. says:

    you are deliciously evil!
    I am really really REALLY trying to be good this month!!!
    Here are the 2 reasons why: I JUST (literally 4 days ago) lost my baby weight (she’s 14 months old now:) & my husband and I are getting to go to Hawaii together the first week of April! He’s been in Med school for the last 3 years, so for his spring break we’re hop’n a plane (kid free!) so we’re really excited…to say the least…
    HOWEVER, this is on my “must make” list for the 2nd week of april :)

    I’m so glad you guys have found success in this. I don’t follow blogs, but I do yours because it helps me to feel like I’m a better mom & wife, but more importantly I love cooking for me! I’m just glad that there are 2 mom’s out there getting to do something they love (and probably hate at times…because isn’t that how it goes) and are able to see the rewards from their efforts.

  48. 48

    Your blog has meant a lot to me too! I am so happy for the both of you and the success you have found sharing your best with the world. It must be so gratifying to have so many admire you and your talents. Thanks to both of you for helping me make better food. Thanks to you for adding variety to my kitchen. I also love both of your little quips about your lives. Your writing is as good as your recipes.

    And thank you for this pie. Holy Cow. Did you make a deal with the devil or something. This pie might kill me. There’s only one way to know for sure.

I also have one daughter that thinks she doesn’t like pie because of the crust but I’m pretty sure this could change her mind. Thanks for another great recipe!

    My husband used to work under a chef for a film catering business. It’s been YEARS ago but he taught me to make a yummy pie w/ sweetend condensed milk that you make into caramel by boiling the unopened can of sweetened condensed milk. It was a pretty cool cooking concept. That pie had banana’s in it too. Just thought maybe it would give you something to play with. :) I had never seen the concept before or since.

My husband said he justed wanted to keep going back for more!

    Not only is it called “Banoffee” pie — it’s an English dessert. My friends, who live in London, introduced me to this dessert! The Brits say it’s an “American” dessert. There is an interesting history on this pie that you can read about on Wikipedia. Banoffee pie, regardless of how you make it, is delicious!

Some of the other student wives were talking about this great blog that they found, where everything tasted wonderful, and how fun the authors were! I bought the book on good faith and it has been so fun trying all of your yummy recipes! Your popcorns are often seved at our presidency meetings, and your cookies and breads at our book club. This year I hit the big 3-0, to celebrate I am having an “Oprah style” party where my friends can win some of my favorite things (on a much smaller level… Think gerber daisies, and a drawing where only one is given away!) and your book!

    I can’t believe I just cried reading a cooking blog. Thanks for all you do! I have never trusted anyone to give me a steady stream of reliably yummy recipes like y’all. I’ll never forget my first OBB- the peppermint ganache brownies. They got me hooked!

    I made this once (ala Paula Deen) and by the time I served it, the dulce de leche was liquid. As soon as those cut bananas touched it, it went runny. Did I do something wrong?

    I enjoyed Banoffee Pie everyday for three weeks at the Preston, England MTC. That was thirteen years ago and I have been dreaming about it ever since, can’t wait to try this!

    Could I use the ready made dulce de leche that is found in the hispanic food aisle in most stores?

    Had quite a lot of festivities this weekend and so we made 2 of these pies and brought them….such a HIT. Everyone loved them! Thanks OBB for making cooking/baking so much fun and enjoyable.

    I made this pie for an early St. Patrick’s Day party (since they eat a lot of that in Ireland) and everyone said it was my best dessert yet! Even the one who lived in Ireland loved it! Just a tip: when making two pies don’t double the whipped topping. I think I have enough of it left over to make the Strawberries and Cream Pie from this site. Lucky Me!

    Made this for a meeting tonight but just had to steal a sliver to taste…..oh my it IS divine. Definetely going to be a keeper. Very easy too. Did the crock pot method for the dulce de leche part. SOOOO AWESOME. Thanks for sharing.

    2 things: First, my HUSBAND made this pie for me tonight, as per my request, for my birthday today. IT IS AMAZING! We were all groaning over it:) What a great, delicious recipe. Secondly, as my husband was reading through this post and the dulce de leche post to get ready to make it, he started laughing out loud, and said, “I might have to start reading ‘Our Best Bites.’” He thinks you are totally funny. He is always making fun of me for reading recipe blogs, and now he is hooked! Thanks for all you do!

    Just to add one more thing: We ate it for breakfast this morning, and then for lunch! Obsessed!!!

    We had a Pie Day party with our Sunday School class tonight and I made this pie. I won first place in the taste contest! Those church ladies are fierce! Thanks so much for your yummy pie!
    PS, we have a tiny little oven in our tiny little house, and it took the dulche de leche almost two hours to cook! Our house was like a sauna! I think I ended up cooking it a bit too long though. What a small price to pay for such yummy goodness! :)

    I’m not usually one to post comments on blogs or websites but I really have appreciated all your great recipes and fun ideas. Honestly if I am ever questioning what to make for dinner I just turn to our best bites and instantly have a list of things I’d like to whip up. I especially enjoy the healthy easy choices! Keep up the creative goodness!

    Happy Anniversary! I made the pie and it is very sweet and has oodles of caramel goodness. However, my Dulce de leche layer is rather runny. It isn’t thick. It is browned, but thin. Did I cook it long enough, or what causes this?

    I have been waiting for the perfect occasion to make this and finally got the chance yesterday. I made it for my daughter’s second, first birthday party, we were all cake and ice creamed out after our first party on Saturday. It was a huge hit. My 83 year old Grandma declared it was the best banana pie she ever had! Thanks for making me look good, don’t worry I tried not to take all the credit.

    I went to the grocery store today determined to make this for our Bible study tonight, but the Heath chips were over $3 a bag and I knew I really shouldn’t have a half a bag of heath chips sitting in my pantry begging me to eat them during nap time especially since they were so pricey, so I bought two regular bars. I *think* it came out okay, maybe slightly skimpy, but who’s going to notice with all that dulce de leche underneath, right?
