"36" Banana Pudding

I am really happy about this banana pudding.  I saw this idea on Pinterest,  and I thought it was so awesome.  These are Pepperidge Farm Chessmen Cookies, similar to a shortbread cookie.  They are delicious by themselves, dipped in Nutella, which is my latest obsession, that and Peanut Butter Poptarts,  or they are great instead of the traditional vanilla wafers in banana pudding. 

I was thinking about a dessert that my son and daughter-in-law could serve at their restaurant, and this one was perfect.   I think it looks classy, is easy and quick to make, and is delicious.  It can also be cut into the sweetest little portion, just enough after a big meal,  

I have shared this pudding recipe on my blog before with vanilla wafers, but I will share it again.  It is very easy and really delicious.  I lined the bottom of the dish with cookies, spread the pudding over that layer, and put another layer of cookies on top.  It is a little expensive to make,  and I think that the cookies on top would be enough.  I am making it again for Cudjoe's birthday party tomorrow night.  He liked it so much that's what he requested.  I am only going to put the cookies on top and see how we like that.

Here you go:

Using a mixer blend together:

1 5.25 ounce box of vanilla instant pudding
1 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
1 8-ounce carton of Cool Whip
1 cup of Water

Slice up four bananas and stir into pudding mixture.

Line bottom of baking dish with cookies.  Spread pudding on top and add a second layer of cookies.
(As I said earlier in this post, I am going to try just a top layer when I make it again.  I thought it was a little bit too much cookie.)

Refrigerate.  Serve to family and friends!
