I am reminded of the song written by The Fresh Beat Band when I think of this recipe “Na, na, na, na, na, na – let’s go BANANA'S”… (be thankful you aren’t seeing me sing and dance to this tune with Maddie! J)
Serioulsy, this has got to be the BEST Banana Pudding I’ve ever had… and of course, it’s a recipe from Paula Deen!! Simply fabulous… will not last at any party!!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 bags Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies
- 6 to 8 bananas, sliced
- 2 cups of milk
- 1 (5-ounce) box of instant French Vanilla pudding
- 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 (14-ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1 (12-ounce) container of frozen whipped topping thawed
Line the bottom of a 13x9x2 inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and layer bananas 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.Recipe Courtesy of Paula Deen
