  1. Combine vanilla wafer crumbs and melted butter; make a crust with this mixture in a greased, oblong, 2-quart casserole.
  2. Mix confectioners' sugar, eggs and 1 cup butter. Beat for 15 minutes — no less! Spread this pudding over the crust.
  3. Layer the thoroughly drained pineapple over the pudding; next layer the strawberries. Sprinkle nuts over fruit. Top with layer of whipped cream.
  4. Refrigerate.
  5. Cut into squares to serve.

Variation: Substitute 3 to 5 sliced bananas and 1 bottle maraschino cherries (drained and chopped) over pineapple for the strawberries.
