  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  1. Mix together Graham cracker crumbs and 1 1/2 sticks butter and spread in 9 x 13-inch pan.
  2. Mix together 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 sticks butter, 2 eggs and vanilla extract. Beat on high speed for 15 minutes (secret of the recipe). Spread this over Graham cracker crumb crust.
  3. Spread pineapple for next layer.
  4. Slice 5 bananas and arrange in layer over pineapple.
  5. Mix Cool Whip according to directions on box and spread for next layer.
