Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Goodness! We made this for a friend's birthday... and folks have been asking us about it ever since! Not only did the Southern birthday boy give it a thumbs-up, but so did every single party guest. Yum!
instant vanilla pudding/pie filling (regular size, not the large box)
1Combine the pudding with the milk and mix together for approximately 2 minutes.
2Gradually fold in the sweetened condensed milk.
3Gradually fold in the whipped topping.
4Slice bananas into 1/4 inch thickness.
5Layer a 9 x 13 dish with the vanilla wafers; then the pudding mixture; and then the banana slices. Then repeat for the 2nd layer. You can crush up the remaining vanilla wafers and scatter on the top if you like.
6Let refrigerate for several hours. Overnite is better, but I have made this early in the morning for a pot-luck at work, and it's great at lunch.
