  • 4 cups homemade vanilla pudding (see full recipe below)
  • 4 cups vanilla wafer cookies
  • 3 bananas (ripe, sliced into ¼ inch rounds)


  • In a large casserole dish, layer vanilla pudding with cookies and banana slices. This can be done with warm or cold pudding. If served immediately, cookies will still have crunch. If not served immediately, ensure top layer is pudding and cover directly with plastic wrap to avoid having a pudding skin developed.
