I made a million dollar pie,Banana bread and mexican wedding cookies for our Christmas dessert. As we were getting closer to the dessert time the first to go was the Banana split pie. Everyone was raving some did not get to try it. Needless to say I had to make two more for the out of town families to take home. And I enjoyed every minute making it for them.?
