Amy's notes for this recipe:
My mom used to make this for us as kids. I use cool whip on the top, but it can also be done with a meringue. Just prepare it in an oven proof baking dish and spread your favorite meringue reicpe over the top and bake until slightly golden on top. MMM mmmmm!

Hi Amy! This is a terrific dessert. I made it this afternoon and half is already gone:) My son devoured it himself:) The only ingredient I didn't add was the frozen whipped topping as it's a product not sold here in Greece. So I just decorated the pudding with a ddditional vanilla wafers! Really fantastic, quick & easy. Thanks for posting.
