Banana Split Pie

DESSERTS

My family asks for this dessert for every birthday and special occasion. It really is good, but sometimes I cringe when they ask for it – I think I make it at least 20 times a year. So, naturally when we were planning a farewell dinner for my son who has been visiting for the holidays the kids asked for it again. Be careful if you make it – you might find yourself in the same position I’m in. Making it over and over!

  10. Place pineapple on the filling first. Then layer the strawberries, followed by the bananas. Drizzle the fruit with chocolate syrup.
  11. Cover with Cool Whip and sprinkle with pecans.
  12. Refrigerate for at least 2 or 3 hours, then serve. Can be made a day ahead.

Notes

- I have found that the crust comes out better when using a foil pan.

- It has been my experience that making the crust the day before is very helpful.

- Really drain the pineapple well. I even place the pineapple on a paper towel and squeeze out any extra juice. You don’t want soggy pie!

- Do not drizzle too much chocolate syrup. I just do 4 or 5 passes.
