Banana Pudding

My boys grinned from ear to ear when they came home from school and saw what their little sister and mommy had been up to...
A huge favorite in our home....thank you Miss Paula Deen !!


Not Yo' Mama's Banana Pudding by Paula Deen

2 bags Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies
6 to 8 bananas, sliced
2 cups milk
1 (5-ounce) box instant French vanilla pudding
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping thawed, or equal amount sweetened whipped cream

Line the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and layer bananas on top.

In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer.
Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture.

Add the cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended.

Pour the mixture over the cookies and bananas and cover with the remaining cookies.

Refrigerate until ready to serve. Layers and layers of deliciousness !
It's Foodie Friday over at designs by Golllum !

Gee Whiz! That looks yummy! I made the double chocolate cookies over the weekend and they were delicious (couldn't fine the cake mix WITH pudding, but the cake mix without worked). Thanks!

I haven't had Banana Pudding for ages. Sounds so good and looks good. I have never used cookies just vanilla wafers. Now my mouth is watering.

Jane said...

I made this dessert for the "college kids" (the young adult Bible study we used to teach). They RAVED about it...and not a drop of pudding was left in the dish. It's a great recipe!

Banana pudding is a favorite of my husbands. I could make this and score some massive points. Probably earn a shopping spree or two.

Well, this definitely isn't my momma's nanner puddin' or my grandmother's or mine for that matter, BUT, you can't beat a recipe by Miss Paula and it's always a good thing to try new versions.

Love the use of the Chessman cookies, so cute!

The Fajdich Times said...

Yum. It looks really, really good. Can't wait to try it:)

Linda said...

Thanks so much for your visit. It's nice to "meet" you. I love banana pudding and Paula Deen - this has to be yummy!
The spinach squares recipe is an easy finger food - just be sure to drain the spinach really well and I hope you enjoy them.

Bananas are my favorite fruit, and there are not many treats better than banana pudding. I would favor it over chocolate if a cup of coffee was involved!
