Creamy Banana Dessert with Cracker Crust

Pat Duran


I made this dessert for the holiday and it was delicious..everyone wanted the recipe...I didn't have graham crackers and didn't want to go to the store so I used buttery cracker crumbs.
The crackers gave the dessert a wonderful salty /sweet taste..I think you will like this too...
