      I had been wanting to make this since I saw that scrumptious picture by GaylaJ! Finally got the job done and was totally happy with the outcome. It was easy to make, it was as lovely as the picture and it was delicious. I couldn't eat it all in one sitting by myself of course cause dh didn't want sweets, so I stuck it in the fridge in hopes of tomorrow. Well tomorrow has come and I want to tell everyone, that to my amazement, I like it even better the next day(had it as breakfast). It was still lovely and it still cut like a pizza! Thanks Peggy Lynn for this great recipe and for your quick response to my question. I do definetly believe this would travel well as long as you keep it cool.

      This really does taste like a banana split--actually better since the crust adds a whole new dimension! Wonderful dessert! Although simple to put together, it makes a beautiful presentation. Thank you, Peggy Lynn, for another winner dessert recipe!
