"I made up this recipe from ingredients I had on hand, and we really like it," says Sharon McClatchey of Muskogee, Oklahoma. Strawberry-banana gelatin gives fruity flavor and pretty color to the smooth cheesecake-like pie.
This fruity dessert makes a light and festive treat that’s sure to dazzle friends and family at the end of any meal. Top the tempting sweet with syrup, caramel and pecans for an ooey-gooey look and mouthwatering taste. —Cherie Sweet, Evansville, Indiana
I fix this creamy dessert whenever I need a no-fuss treat. Friends are surprised to hear that it's made in the microwave because the soft banana filling and thick buttery crust taste like I slaved over the stove for hours.

When I read that Taste of Home was having a banana recipe contest, I knew instantly the recipe I should share. This delectable pie is from a recipe I found years ago, and everyone who tastes it enjoys its delicious old-fashioned flavor. —Rita Pribyl, Indianapolis, Indiana
These petite pies take very little time to prepare and it’s an impressive, delicious dessert. Since my husband’s work hours are erratic, we don’t eat at the same time every day, so I often have these chilling in the refrigerator several hours in advance of mealtime.
