4. Bake cases for 10-15 minutes until just golden and allow to stand for five minutes before putting on a wire rack.
5. Put butter into a pot and melt over a low heat. Once melted add brown sugar, stir until sugar is dissolved.
6. Add condensed milk and keep stirring until mixture thickens and caramelises, do not let mixture boil.
7. Let mixture cool slightly then using two teaspoons put caramel into pastry cases, place cases in fridge for an hour to cool caramel completely.
8. Slice up the banana, whip the cream and make chocolate curls with a peeler.
9. Once pies have cooled place a slice of banana on top and pipe some whipped cream on top. Finish off with some chocolate curls.
