1. Mix flour, chopped pecans, and butter together and press in 13 x 9 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Crust will be thin. Let cool.
2. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the Cool Whip until thoroughly combined. Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the graham cracker crust.
3. Arrange the banana slices in a single layer on top of the cream cheese filling, top with an even layer of the crushed pineapple, and then an even layer of the sliced strawberries.
4. Cover with Cool Whip on top. Sprinkle with the chopped walnuts. Drizzle with chocolate syrup and top with maraschino cherries. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
