In a mixer beat the cream cheese, sugar and the cream but reserve about 100ml.
In a bowl put the slices of gelatin in ice water and put 100ml of cream warming and when boiling add the gelatin leaves and dissolve in the hot cream.

Hello, today i bring to blog a traditional English recipe Banofee Pie its is to do it and kids love it. Maybe you find little helpers to leak bowl hehe =) i add berries on top just to give special touch and glaze in end =) i left the simple recipe and you decor the pie at your taste, could be chocolate balls, could be various types of fruit !

For the Crust:

9 digestive cookies, pulverized into crumbs (about 1 cup cracker crumbs)

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and still warm

For the Filling:

3 bananas, peeled and sliced ¼-inch thick

14 ounces, dulce de leche (cooked condensed milk)

For the Whipped Cream:

1½ cups heavy cream

½ cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

To Garnish:

Fruit in picture and clear glaze

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
In a medium bowl, stir together the crumbs and the granulated sugar.
While stirring and mixing continuously with a fork, slowly drizzle the melted butter into the digestive crumbs and sugar mixture.
Once you are done, all of the dry ingredients should be moistened and it should look like wet sand.
Transfer the crumbs to a 9-inch pie plate and evenly press the crumbs into the pie plate.
Bake the crust until it is fragrant and beginning to brown, 15 to 18 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool to room temperature.
Arrange the sliced bananas on the crust, then spread the dulce de leche over top of the bananas.
In a large bowl, whisk the heavy cream using an electric mixer, whip the cream, powdered sugar and vanilla extract on medium-high speed until barely stiff peaks form. Spread the whipped cream over the filling and garnish with chopped peanuts and shaved chocolate, if desired, and serve.
Cover leftovers with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

Tip:Try caramelized your sliced bananas in brown sugar and whisky =)

Perfectly Imperfect Apples ( in second Post next) and i got the British chicken breast.I did this recipe its delicious and healthy to eat with i did a smash sweet potatoes with chives.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped mixed dried fruit, such as apricots, apples and raisins
1/2 cup dried plain bread crumbs (may substitute fresh bread crumbs)
1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
8 medium (56 ounces) chicken breasts

For the chicken: Combine the dried fruit, bread crumbs, pine nuts, 2 tablespoons of the oil and half of the parsley in the bowl of a food processor; pulse a few times to combine. Transfer to a medium bowl.
Combine the salt, cumin, black pepper, coriander and cinnamon in a small bowl to form a spice mix.
Cover the work surface with a large piece of plastic wrap or parchment paper; place the chicken on it.
Starting on one side of each chicken breast half, make a horizontal slice, cutting almost all the way through; open the chicken like a book.
Lay a sheet of plastic wrap over the butterflied breast and gently pound with a mallet, flattening it evenly to less than 1/2 inch.
Sprinkle the insides of the chicken breast halves using half of the spice mix and then top each with a few tablespoons of the dried fruit mixture.
Fold each breast over and secure with a toothpick. Sprinkle the outsides of the breasts with the remaining spice mix.
Wrap well and refrigerate until ready to cook.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat until the oil shimmers (about 1 1/2 minutes).
Add 4 of the stuffed chicken breasts and cook undisturbed for 3 minutes, until they have browned on the bottom and release easily from the skillet.
Turn them over and cook for about 2 minutes, until the second sides have lightly browned. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the skillet; when it is shimmering, add the remaining chicken and repeat the cooking process.
Fifteen minutes before you are ready to serve, transfer the stuffed, seared chicken breasts to the oven; roast for 8 to 10 minutes, until they are firm to the touch and just cooked through (an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest piece should register 165 degrees). Let cool for few minutes, then transfer the chicken to a platter and drizzle with the pan sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining parsley.
