Everybody's favorite foodie Jan D'Atri brought us a fun treat Monday morning!
A super cool Spring dessert that's so pretty, easy and yummy! It's a Banana Pudding
with Pepperidge Farms cookies on top. The Pepperidge Farms Chessmen change
out their cookies for spring and do tulips and watering cans and suns instead of
chess men. Watch the Facebook Live video with Beth and Jan and then check
the recipe below and make your own!
Banana Chessman Cookie Pudding
2 containers Pepperidge Farms Chessman Cookies
2 cups whole milk
1 (3.4oz) package Vanilla Pudding or Hershey’s White Chocolate Pudding, instant
1 package cream cheese, softened
1 (14oz) Carnation or Borden Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 (14oz) container Cool Whip *(see substitution)
6 to 8 sliced bananas, slightly ripened
Optional, whipped topping in a can
Line the bottom of a 13x9x2-inch casserole or baking dish with 1 bag of Chessman Cookies.
In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend with an electric hand mixer
until thickened. Set aside. In another bowl, combine the softened cream cheese and
condensed milk. Mix with electric hand mixer until smooth and creamy. Fold the
Cool Whip into the cream cheese mixture. Add the cream cheese mixture to the
pudding mixture and stir until well blended. Slice bananas into ½ inch discs.
Cover layer of cookies with banana slices. Spoon the pudding and cream cheese
mixture evenly over the cookies. Cover with second container of Chessman Cookies.
Refrigerate for several hours or until ready to serve. (The longer the pudding is
refrigerated, the softer the cookies become.) Serve 1-2 cookies per serving.
Optional: Top with whipped topping and 2 slices of banana.
Substitution Note: 16 oz. of whipping cream plus 2 heaping tablespoons of
powdered sugar can be substituted for Cool Whip. Whip heavy cream together
with powdered sugar until thickened.
