I haven't posted a recipe on my blog for a while, but I had to share this one!! Last weekend my husband smoked ribs and brisket and what better to go with BBQ than banana pudding? I found this recipe from Paula Deen and it was the best banana pudding I have ever had!
Instead of using vanilla wafers, the recipe calls for these Pepperidge Farms Chessmen cookies.
It was so easy, and my husband and I kept going back every single night for more until the bananas were too rotten to eat (the recipe makes a TON).
Not Yo' Mama's Banana Pudding
* 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.
