Banana Split Dessert

   New desserts are always fun. My daughter brought this dessert home as her contribution for Easter Dinner. It was layers of creamy sweet and fun fruit.
  Now that she's moved out and learning her way around the kitchen, she's proud to bring home her attempts to show me.
  This turned out to be a big hit at Easter and is easy to do as well as good eats. 

Banana Split Dessert

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 sticks butter or margarine, 1 stick melted and 2 softened
4 T. sugar
2 cups powdered sugar
4-5 bananas, sliced
1-15 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained
1-8 oz. tub whipped topping
1 jar maraschino cherries
1 cup pecans, chopped

   Combine graham cracker crumbs, 1 stick melted butter and and sugar. Press into 9x12 baking dish.
