Paula Deen’s Banana Pudding



1 12-oz container frozen whipped topping, thawed

1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk

1 8-oz bundle cream cheese, softened

2 cups milk

1 5.1-oz field on the spot French vanilla pudding combine

6 to eight bananas, sliced

2 7.25-oz baggage Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies


Line the underside of a 3-quart 13×9 baking dish with a single layer of cookies.

Mix cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk in a big mixing bowl then beat with an electrical mixer till easy. Combine in common milk till easy.

Add pudding combine then proceed mixing till nicely mixed.

Add whipped topping to the combination then fold collectively till included.

Spoon a skinny layer of pudding combination over cookies (simply sufficient to cowl).

Organize banana slices over pudding. Some overlapping is OK – they don’t have to put flat.

Pour remaining pudding combination over bananas then unfold evenly.

Cowl pudding combination with remaining cookies. Cowl and refrigerate 6 hours (or in a single day) earlier than serving.


When you can’t discover a big field of on the spot French vanilla pudding, use common vanilla then add a teaspoon of vanilla extract when mixing to assist get that stronger “French vanilla” taste.

I haven’t been capable of finding the 12-oz containers of cool whip in a coon’s age so I simply purchase two of the 8-oz containers and use one and a half (I discover this simpler than guessing with the 16-oz container plus I exploit the 8-oz containers to pack my leftovers for lunch 😁).

You received’t use fairly all the cookies. Since a few of them break within the bundle, put all of the damaged ones within the backside of the dish and save the nice ones for the highest.

The dessert might want to relaxation no less than 6 hours earlier than serving to make sure the cookies have time to melt.
