Oh My God, What a Great Dessert!

Randi Lerch


An unusual layered dessert that always gets rave reviews.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Oh my... this is 4 layers of goodness. The bottom layer is nutty, crunchy and tastes like a shortbread. The second layer has a hint of tanginess from the cream cheese but is also a bit sweet. The sliced bananas are soft and creamy. The butterscotch pudding adds a lovely sweet, butter flavor. The whipped topping is light and fluffy. When all combined, you really do have a great dessert!
