1/3 box of graham crackers, ground into crumbs
4 T butter, melted
1/2 c butter at room tempremature
1 c sugar
1 t vanilla
1/2 c flour
1/2 c cocoa powder
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
8 oz cream cheese at room temp
1/4 c sugar
1 very ripe banana, smashed
2 Tablespoons flour
Preheat oven to 350. Combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Press into 9″ pie plate.
For the brownie later, beat sugar and butter until fluffy. Next, beat in eggs and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients, stir until just combined. Pour batter into crust and spread carefully (the batter is thick and may pull on the crust if you aren’t careful). Bake 15 minutes.
While that’s cooking, beat cream cheese, banana and sugar until fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla, beat in, beat in flour last. When brownie is done (it won’t be set yet, so again, be careful), remove from oven and spread cheesecake mixture evenly over it. Put back in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the middle is set (it won’t jiggle when you gently shake the pie plate).
Remove from oven, let cool, then refrigerate until serving. Serve with sliced strawberries and a drizzle of hot fudge. Yum!
