This is so yummy.... a great dessert to make in the summer, but it is great in any season. I have made this for company as an after dinner dessert.
- 3 -4 bananas (yellow and ripe, but not brown)
- 1⁄2 gallon vanilla ice cream, the cardboard paper box kind (very hard, NOT softened)

- Prepare an 11" x 15" pan or a 13" x 9" pan.
- Reserve 1 cup cracker crumbs.
- Cover the bottom of the pan with the remaining 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs Slice the bananas crosswise, and layer evenly over the crumbs in the pan.
