Banana Split Cake

My husbands family has been making this recipe for years. I would have to say this one is in my top 10 favorites of all I have in my recipe box. This is a refreshing dessert for the summer, yet the ingredients in this recipe you can get any time of the year in the market. It looks beautiful and so easy to make.

The Crust:
1/2 cup margarine, melted
2 cups ritz crackers crushed

2 eggs
2 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup margarine, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 20oz. can drained crushed pineapple
5 ripe bananas
9 ounces whipped topping
Maraschino cherries with or without stems, drained
Chopped walnuts or pecans

1. In a small bowl combine the margarine and crackers. Press into the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish
2. In a mixer beat the eggs for 4 minutes, add powdered sugar, 3/4 cup softened margarine, vanilla and beat for 5 minutes. Pour over the crust and chill for 4 hours.
3. Remove from the refrigerator and layer the drained pineapple, bananas, whipped topping, cherries and the walnuts. Chill until ready to serve. Enjoy!!!
