I made this for the 4th of July and it was a huge huge huge hit!! And only two people there were drunk, so I was getting solid reviews. I must add though even the drunks went back for seconds.
I am making it again this weekend for my sons 31st birthday. I know I am way to young to have kids that age, but we will discuss that at another time.
*I love Paula Dean. I got this recipe from her, she calls me occasionally and asks me to try her stuff out. I gladly oblige. This one is a keeper. Most of her things are, in my humble opinion.
2 bags Pepperidge Farm Chessman Cookies, divided
6 to 8 bananas, sliced
2 Cups milk
1 5 ounce box instant French vanilla pudding ( I used plain old vanilla)
1 8 oz pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk ( I used two, one for the recipe and one for my beverage while making said dessert)
1 12 oz container frozen whipped cream topping, thawed, or an equal amount sweetened whipped cream. ( If you know me at all, you know I did not use the frozen whipped crap)
Line bottom of a 13 x 9 x 2 inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and put bananas on top. Blend milk with pudding mix with a hand held electric mixer until well blended.
( Hum one of your favorite tunes for a moment, my hands are going numb so I need to take a break. Too much gardening. )
Sorry for the inconvenience
Oh man, now the Jehova Witness's are at the door, just a moment.
They were very nice. I will read the Bible a little later today.
Line bottom of a wait........ sorry!
Beat cream cheese and condensed milk together in a bowl until smooth, fold in whipped cream. Add to pudding mixtgure, stirring until well blended. pour mixture over cookies and bananas, cover with remaining cookies. Refrigerate.
One quick suggestion. Put the bananas on top of cookies just before you pour the pudding mixture over them. Banana's go brown so fast that, that just looks gross.
* Paula Dean never calls me. I wish she would! I'd probably poop my pants though.
