This dessert was a huge hit when I made it for a family supper. It is easy to make and it is a perfect, light ending to a big meal. Add it to your Thanksgiving dessert menu and see how many compliments you receive. Can be made in advance by a couple days, it will only get better.


  1. 1In a bowl, combine the graham crackers crumbs, pecans, butter and sugar. Press into a ungreased 13-in. × 9-in. × 2-in. baking dish.
    Drain the pineapple, reserving juice; set pineapple aside. Place bananas in a small bowl; add reserved juice. Let stand for 5-10 minutes; drain. Arrange bananas in a single layer over crust.
  1. 1In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in milk. Add pudding mixes; beat on low speed just until combined. Spread over the bananas; top with pineapple. Spread with whipped topping; sprinkle with chopped pecans. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. (Keep leftovers refrigerated but do not keep covered I found they got to wet on the bottom if covered). Yield: 15 servings.
