Every holiday or special event, I am asked to make MY Banana Pudding! First, let me say-THANK YOU FOR ASKING! I love to make it, but just so you know, it is not my original creation. I have my ex-director, Faye Christopher, to thank for that, but.....it is MINE now and everyone loves it (not counting my Dad who will always love the old-fashion kind....cookin' the puddin' for 2 hours...?##@&*##? & with all that beautiful merange on top), but back to MY Banana Pudding. It is just about the best dessert (not counting Baked Alaska now!). But just in case you want to try MY recipe, here it is:
1 large box Instant Vanilla Pudding
3 cups cold Milk
8 Bananas, sliced
1-2 boxes Vanilla Wafers
1-8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 t. vanilla
1-8 oz. Cool Whip
1-8 oz. Creamy Cool Whip
Mix the instant pudding with milk as directed on box. Mix in softened cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk & vanilla (mixture may appear lumpy, but don't worry 'bout it). Blend in the 8-oz Cool Whip.
Line the vanilla wafers & bananas at least 3 times in the bowl, alternating with the pudding mixture (just like the old fashion kind of course!). Top with the Creamy Cool Whip.
Keep refrigerated. Enjoy!
It will knock your socks off-no kidding! I have pictures to prove it!
