Description

A little old lady at Brookshires gave me her family recipe when she found me pacing back and forth in the baking isle, searching for something to make for my father-in-law and his guests after his wife died…

Ingredients

  • 1 package Cream Cheese
  • 1 can Sweetened, Condensed Milk
  • 2 boxes Banana Cream Instant Pudding
  • 4 cups Milk (per Package)
  • 1 container Cool Whip Large (but Don't Use All Of It)
  • 6 whole Bananas
  • 1 box Vanilla Wafers

Preparation

Start with the room temperature cream cheese.

Mix in the sweetened condensed milk.

Then add the instant pudding mix. Once this is thoroughly blended, add the milk (per instant pudding instructions). Put in refrigerator to “set” for a few hours.

Once pudding is firm, mix in 1/4th of the cool whip. Don’t blend thoroughly. Mixed in lightly with a swirled appearance is fine.

The cool whip makes the pudding mixture more spreadable (as I found out once when I tried to leave out the cool whip).

Now you are ready to assemble the layers in a 9 x 12 baking dish.

Slice 2-3 bananas for the bottom layer. Cover with 1/2 the pudding mix. Put down a thin layer of plain cool whip. Top with crumbled vanilla wafers.

Rinse and repeat (just kidding, only repeat).

Line the finished product with whole vanilla wafers. If you want crispy wafers in the pudding, don’t assemble until the last minute. Seriously, it’s my most common question… “How do you keep the wafers crunchy?”

Don’t assemble until the last minute.
