Who said you have to bake something for a bake sale? This fun dessert from Paula is perfect for the kids to help make and eat. School is not in session when it comes to this easy dessert. No matter what you do you can’t hurt this delicious pudding, and placing the cookies on top is a kid’s dream, making fun designs and eating a couple of cookies mid artistic moment.

For a little different twist, Paula likes to serve the banana pudding in mason jars with a cookie sticking out the top. These little jam jars are perfect for little hands.

Not Yo Mama’s Banana Pudding

Ingredients:

1 12-ounce container frozen whipped topping thawed, or equal amount sweetened whipped cream
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
2 cups milk
1 5-ounce box instant French vanilla pudding
6-8 bananas, sliced
2 bags Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies

Directions

Line the bottom of a 13x9x2-inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and layer bananas on top.

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 the mixture over the cookies and bananas and cover with the remaining cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Ms. P you have completely won me over. My mother-in-law has been using your recipes for sometime now and I swore I would not make anything of yours because I would not be able to stop eating it. Just this Thanksgiving (Happy Holiday's by the way) I went to a relatives house and they had this banana pudding that was OUT OF THIS WORLD...long story short 3 days later I'm still obsessing over it. She didn't tell me the recipe but allowed me to bring some home. I'm an ok cook and could normally make a dish just off the taste...oh no not this time..I could not figure out what was giving it this wonderfully rich taste. Determined to get the recipe I came straight to your site..and low and behold there it is.."Not your Momma's Bananna Pudding" let me just tell you, my diet is out of the door and I will deal with it later. As of now, I'm going to enjoy yet another bowl of this wonderful desert....Thanks Ms. P my work will be hooked once i take this dish in, they call me Booswa-Betty it will now be Paula Dean Jr. Lol. Take care..Peace and Blessings to you and yours! M. Holley

I made this over the weekend, and it was really creamy and delicious. But my husband said he would have preferred it without the bananas. I wonder if this would be good with strawberries in stead? Has anybody tried it with other fruit?

Everytime I make this for a gathering I get requests for the recipe. Now the guys who work for my husband are always giving him bananas and asking for the pudding. They don't know that the bananas are the least of the making. It's okay though, I don't mind spoiling them when I get to lick the bowl!

I made this banana pudding for the holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas, and everyone loved it. My daughter made it to take to her in-laws Christmas gathering, and the eat all of it. Nothing to bring home. Thanks for the recipe.

Love, love, love this recipe!

By April D. on December 07, 2010

Last year for Thanksgiving dinner for the family I made this pudding.  It was SOOOOO delicious that I’m making it again this year for Thanksgiving!  smile

By Sandy Peterson-Clauser on November 24, 2010

This is SO-O-O-O good.  I cannot eat bananas, but the taste of the pudding before topping the banana slices is so rich and creamy.  I like to dip the cookies in it and taste the pudding.  My family and everyone else who has tasted it comments that it is the very best they’ve tasted.

By Ruth Barton on November 05, 2010

I love this banana pudding recipe! I made it about 9 years ago when I first saw it on Paulas show. When I wanted to make it again I could not find the recipe anywhere. I am so glad to see it again!! YEAH!

By JP on October 14, 2010

Cindy, you can dip your bananas in lemon juice to keep them from turning dark.  It works for me, hope it does for you too

By Pat on October 01, 2010

Is there anything i can dip the banana slices in to keep them from turning black so quickly. Thanks,Cindy

By Cindy Brown on July 08, 2010

This is by far the BEST banana pudding I’ve ever had. I’m from the south and have had MANY versions of this southern delight, but this one is the best! It is so easy and is a wonderful potluck or picnic dish (just keep refrigerated until serving).  I always get requests for the recipe. This recipe is a family favorite!

Paula, I love watching you and your family. I miss seeing your show, I watched you everyday. My son lives in Charleston S.C. He took me to the Lady & Sons to eat. Oh my goodness! People are always telling me that I look just like the cooking lady Paula Deen. I always tell them that you are my hero. May God Bless You Mary Ann

Add a few spoonfuls of parmesan cheese to the flour and cornmeal breading and it kicks the tomatoes up another notch. Bev

I just bought Paula's Peach Salad Dressing and wondered if anyone has a good recipe that they use it in?

Congrats Bobby. Loved the family picture miss you Paula on TV will be watching online. Jack is getting big. Looks like his mom but Matt aka moose has your face. Your eyes cheeks hair even falls to his face like yours except to the left. Good luck on your next venture. You give us other 60+ yr women strength to move on. Keep up the good work.
