Amazing Banana Pudding

This Amazing Banana Pudding recipe is the only banana pudding recipe you will ever need! First, this recipe was a hit with everyone when I brought it to a family get together.  It's so tasty!

What I love about classic banana pudding is that it's great for just about any time of year! It travels well for hotter days while it works as a great holiday comfort food dessert, too.

The cream cheese adds an extra decadence and creaminess to this pudding and the layer of sliced bananas over the vanilla wafers keeps them from getting too soggy.  Bring this dessert to your family BBQ this summer and you will be the hit of the party!

Change it up a bit and try using Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies in place of the vanilla wafers! How good would that be?!?

If you give this recipe a try you will never make plain banana pudding again!
