Banana-Cream Cheesecake

Recipe by senseicheryl

I received a booklet from Kraft Foods today which is called "food & family" and this is one of the recipes in it that I am posting here to try at a later date.

I made this and accidentally used regular sugar in the crust which was good. Also, with the leftovers, I sprinkled coconut on top of the whipped topping. It was GREAT! It would probably also be good with chopped pecans on top (instead of the coconut). Easy and delicious!
