Quoting Spoonful of Jayson:" Actually, no. I've never had banana pudding and I've also never made it!"
Really? I never knew anything about it until I spent 2 years in North Carolina.
It's actually a very light dessert and (IMO) goes amazing after a large Holiday meal. There are so many different ways of making it but, Aaron loves the way I make mine and tells me not to stray from the recipe I already know. It's actually really simple to make and, the ingredients are easy. I usually buy the instant pudding (Banana flavor), Cool Whip, Nilla Wafers, and bananas. Those are the only ingredients I use.
Some people prefer using Vanilla pudding instead of Banana though. It's all preference to be honest.
Get a baking dish. (Something you can use that will allow you to do layers).
Make the instant pudding as the directions say.. I recommend at LEAST 2 packages though. It's better to have extra than to not have enough.
Slice the bananas. (You can slice them as you go).
Put the cookies all across the bottom of the pan. Spread the pudding on top of the cookies, and then lay down the sliced banana across the pudding. Then add a layer of Cool Whip.
If you have more room to do more layers than continue layering it as stated above. When you get to the final top layer of Cool Whip, crush a descent amount of the cookies and sprinkle it on top. Refrigerate for about 20-30 minutes and enjoy it.
You can layer it in a pan, I layer mine in a glass mixing bowl. (When I make it, I make it for a large amount of people).
