First and foremost, I wanted to thank Heidi at Sacred and Profane for putting on this great contest! Go check it out for details. This month she's letting the kids take the wheel. DD, the 10y/o and Nisha, the 15y/o aspiring Pastry Chef, have chosen a super delicious dessert to prepare!
Here is our entry:
Banana Split Pie
1 graham cracker crust pie
1 can crushed pineapple
1 small container fresh strawberries
1 box prepared Jell-O pudding (Cheesecake flavor works best)
1/4 c. chopped nuts
1 container Cool-Whip
1 jar Maraschino cherries
Spread half of the Cheesecake flavor pudding about 1/4 inch thick on the graham cracker crust.
Slice both bananas into bite-sized pieces and layer on top of Jello.
Slice about 8 or 10 strawberries into bite-sized pieces and layer on tope of the bananas.
Drain the crushed pineapple and layer that on top of the strawberries (probably only need about 1/2 of the can)
Top with Cool-whip, sprinkle chopped nuts and dot with cherries.
Freeze for 30 min to an hour and serve.
The girls are making this again on Thursday evening because we snarfed down the one on Monday and I didn't get to take any pics.... so pics to follow!
