A low calorie, creamy dessert with a coconut cookie crust that is filled with banana-flavored cream and sliced bananas.
Line an 8 x 8 pan with 12 cookies; set aside. (If the cookies don’t fit perfectly, just break them into large pieces so that they do fit.)
In a bowl beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in pudding mix and beat until combined. Beat in half of the Cool Whip, until combined. Fold in the remaining Cool whip.
Add half the cream cheese mixture over cookies in the baking pan. Top with sliced bananas and then top that with the remaining cream cheese mixture.
In a mini food processor, add the remaining 4 cookies and process until you have crumbs. Sprinkle crumbs over the cream cheese mixture and top with maraschino cherries if desired. The cherries really give it a nice pop.
Refrigerate until ready to eat. The longer it sits in refigerator the softer the cookies get.
This dish is so easy to make and, in comparison to its traditional cousin, can be made as low fat as you desire (using fat free Cool Whip and sugar free pudding mix). The molasses cookies add a spiciness not often found in a traditional pie crust. If you don’t like the flavor of molasses, you could always substitute ginger snaps, but the soft molasses cookies are a delicious addition.
