- 4 bananas sliced
- 15 ounces crushed pineapple drained

- 1 16 ounce jar maraschino cherries
- 12 ounces pecans
To make the crust, combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar in a bowl. Stir to combine. Press into a 9x13-inch pan.
Mix together the 2 cups powdered sugar, vanilla, and cream cheese together. Blend until smooth and spread over the graham cracker crust.
