Yum Yum MammaDucky...Guest Post #2

What can I NOT say about Mammaducky? Like Janana BEE we've been bloggy pals for a while now. That almost feels like eternity in bloggy time. MD is absolutely a talented, witty, can cook, hysterical, mean mommy fighting chica who I'm blessed to know. I knew instantly what I wanted from her. As this blog will never have a HOW TO COOK THIS post it was obvious I would beg her for one.

Read on friends, and let your tummies rumble from the yumminess of it all.

************************************

First of all, I need to say how incredibly honored I am that our friend, The Rambler, asked me to do a guest post while she is away. Friggen awesome! I giggled like a little school girl when she asked me. I then proceeded to obsess about which recipe I would post. So many options! So many people to impress! I narrowed it down to two different pies: banana split pie or caramel apple pie.

I chose this one
Don't worry kids, check my blog in the very near future for the other recipe!

This pie is SUPER easy and friggen yummy. It never fails to impress at BBQs or other gatherings. How 'bout y'all bring this bad boy to your Memorial Day soirees!
Ok, here we go.
Run out and getcha some:

1 Graham cracker pie crust
1 pkg cream cheese, softened (you can limit the fat content by choosing low fat or fat free cream cheese, but where is the fun in that?)
1/2 Cup sugar
2-3 bananas, sliced on the diagonal
1/2 can crushed pineapple, drained
small container of cool whip
Maraschino cherries
pecans/peanuts/walnuts/no nuts ;)
Hershey's syrup

Beat the cream cheese and sugar in a small bowl. GENTLY spread the cream cheese mixture into the pie crust. Layer the sliced bananas on top of that, followed by the pineapple. Spread Cool Whip on top.
On a paper towel, drain the cherries. Do not skip this step or your pie will look, ummm, interesting when those cherries start to bleed their juice everywhere. Plop the cherries on top, use as many as you fancy. Sprinkle the nuts on, or skip the nuts all together. Drizzle the chocolate syrup on top of the whole thing and you're done...no seriously, that's it.

See man, I told you it was easy. Easy as pie, if you will. ZING!!! Man I'm funny. Maybe not.

**Side note** If you're going to a bigger event, or you just feel like you need MORE of this tasty treat you can crush 2 sleeves of graham crackers, mix that up with 1 stick of melted butter and press it into a 9 x 13 pan. Then just double everything else in the recipe and you're good to go.

Enjoy.

That seems easy. But around these Rambler parts easy and cooking/baking don't come easy. Oh Mammaducky if I could only live next door. I'd eat like a queen. Cause you KNOW me and Team Rambler would be knocking at your back door for meals :)

At this point in the day, I'd eat anything....but this pie would go FIRST. I love all parts...but would have to be a no nutter. Baby's got peanut allergies. :)
