I've been making this three years now and can't believe I havent reviewed it yet. It's was a hit from the start and now its considered mandatory that I prepare it every Thanksgiving (In honor of Grandma, who always brought the banana pudding, but we've all agreed that this recipe is way better. Sorry Grandma.) I prepare it in two 8x8 dishes instead of the 9x13 since it makes so much for our small family. So now it's a family tradition around here to barter the other half our banana pudding for whatever new dessert my friend prepares.
Small changes I've made: I use Banana Cream flavored jello pudding for a more banana flavor, I brush my sliced bananas with lemon juice to keep them from browning so fast (keeps it looking pretty for the big day, since I make it the night before) and while I layer whole chessman cookies on the bottom, I crush the rest (minus two, one for each dish) and sprinkle them on top with a whole cookie in the center.
Thank you so much for sharing!
