Dana Lesniewski


1 stick butter, melted
1 box graham crackers, broken into crumbs
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
c. butter, softened
3 c. powdered sugar
4 bananas, sliced
20 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained
1 container frozen strawberries, thawed
16 oz. container Cool-Whip, thawed (substitute 1 c. heavy whipping cream)
4 oz. jar maraschino cherries, stemmed
1 c. chopped walnuts or pecans, optional
Hot fudge sauce, slightly warmed

1. In a medium bowl combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter.
2. Firmly press into a crust in the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Let chill in the freezer for about 10 minutes to firm up.
3. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, and the powdered sugar, until creamy - about 5 minutes. *Don't be tempted to add milk, it will take a few minutes but the mixture will blend up perfectly.*
4. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the cooled graham cracker crust.
5. Add a layer of sliced bananas over the cream cheese mixture.
6. Spread pineapple chunks and thawed strawberries evenly over the bananas.
7. Evenly spread the Cool-Whip over the fruit layer using a rubber spatula.
8. Garnish with maraschino cherries and nuts.
9. Drizzle the chocolate fudge over the dessert. Keep refrigerated.
