Banana Split Pie

Since it felt like summer last week, I was not in the mood to be baking and heating up the house with the oven on.  So I found this recipe and thought it sounded like the perfect summery treat.  That said, if you could just do me a huge favor and pay no attention to the picture of what it is supposed to look like on the recipe, that would be great.  I have never claimed to be an expert with Cool Whip and here is your proof.  I was too impatient and instead of waiting for it to thaw, I stirred it and ended up with a drippy mess.  Lesson learned: when a recipe says, "stir gently," it actually means "stir gently," and there is a really good reason for it.  In any case, despite the way it looks, it was delicious and we destroyed it within two days.  I will be trying this one again but with a little variation (and a little patience); I am thinking I might try an Oreo crust and add a little peanut butter to the bottom layer.  And since my husband does not care for strawberries or pecans as toppings, we will use chopped Reese Peanut Butter cups instead . . . obviously a much healthier alternative.
