No Bake Banana Split Pie

No Bake Banana Split Pie
Recipe Adapted from Natalie's Killer Cuisine

1 sleeve of graham crackers, crushed 
1 stick melted butter
2 sticks room temp butter
2.5 cups powdered sugar 
2 eggs
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1 cup diced pineapple
6+ Bananas (use as many as it takes)
8 oz container of Cool Whip or if you love cool whip like me I suggest using a 12 oz tub of cool whip 
Various toppings (cherries, chocolate syrup, nuts, sprinkles etc)

Crush the graham crackers by putting them in a food processor or you can hand crush them. 

Mix the graham crackers with the melted butter and press down in a 9x13 pan

Use your mixer to combine the butter, powdered sugar, eggs and vanilla until you get a creamy buttercream

Spread the buttercream over the crust

Cut the bananas length wise and place them on the buttercream mixture. I pressed them down slightly.

Spread the pineapple over the bananas

Spread the cool whip on top of the bananas/pineapples

Top with your favorite toppings

Refrigerate for several hours (at least 2 hours)

Overall this recipe was a success. If I make this again, I would use more melted butter when making the crust and I would use more cool whip on top. I only used 1 stick and found the crust to be a little dry. I also only used 1 8 oz tub of cool whip and felt that it was a stretch to cover the whole pie. This is worth making at least once this summer. Now get into the kitchen and forget about turning on the oven.
