Better Than Yo Mama's Banana Pudding

 12 oz Container Whipped Topping (Cool Whip), Thawed
 14 oz Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
 8 oz Package Cream Cheese, Softened
 5 oz Box Instant French Vanilla Pudding
 6 Bananas, Sliced
 3 Bags Pepperidge Farms Chessmen Cookies

Line the bottom of a 13x9x2 inch dish with cookies and layer bananas on top.
[Logan suggests opening the bags first and finding the broken cookies to place on the bottom layer.]


In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer. Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Add the cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended.


Pour half of the mixture over the cookies and bananas. Layer the rest of the sliced bananas over the first layer and then cover with remaining pudding mixture. Cover with remaining cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Recipe adapted from Paula Deen's Not Yo' Mama's Banana Pudding Recipe

I'm a firm believer in giving credit where credit is due - this is Paula Deen's recipe with a few tweaks and it is hands down, the best banana pudding you will ever eat.
