Cliff like to call this his "heaven on earth" pie because this is what he imagines the best taste there is might be like! That's quite a compliment from my "truck-drivin' man," who honed his taste buds in truck stops and restaurants coast-to-coast during his years as a long-distance trucker. Now he's traded his eighteen-wheeler for computers and printing presses, but he's never lost his taste for my banana split recipes.
