A friend gave me the recipe for this pie crust, which goes great with a banana filling. My husband and his family are all really big fans of coconut and banana desserts, so I like to make this one for them on special occasions.

Made from our farm-fresh dairy products, this pie was a sensational creamy treat anytime that Mom served it. Her recipe is a real treasure, and I've never found one that tastes better!

Here’s a gorgeous pie that really looks like you fussed. It features a crunchy graham cracker crust with a touch of ginger, a lovely fresh strawberry layer and tasty banana cream topping. — Julie Guntzel, Bemidji, Minnesota
"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.
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.
