This is better than Mama’s best banana pudding

by Kathy Hamman Miller

By far the best Banana pudding you will ever make! I had forgotten just how good it tasted that turned into an instant favorite again. The size makes it perfect to bring for family gatherings too.


2 bags Pepperidge farm chessman cookies.

Enough bananas sliced, to cover a 13 x 9 inch pan – around 6 to 7 bananas.

2 cups milk.

One 5oz. box of instant French vanilla pudding mix

One 8oz. block of cream cheese room temp.

A 14oz. can of sweetened condensed milk.

22 oz. container of cool whip thawed.

Line the 13- x 9-inch pan with one bag of the cookies flat side down.Layer evenly the sliced bananas on top of that.Blend milk and the pudding mix with a beater for about a minute or until it’s thickened.In another bowl beat the creamed cheese with condensed milk until it’s nice and smoothed out.

Stir in the thawed cool whip, then add to the pudding mixture until it’s well combined. Pour over the cookies and bananas evenly, layer on top with the remaining bag of cookies. Allow to refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
