How to Make Banana Cream Pie Bars


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Mix wafer crumbs, pecan pieces, and butter in a 13 x 9" baking dish. Press firmly onto the bottom of the dish.
  3. Bake the crust for about 8 minutes at 325 degrees F. Cool 10 minutes or so.
  4. Top crust with banana slices.
  5. Pour milk into a large bowl and add dry pudding mixes. Beat with a wire whisk 2 minutes, or until well blended. Spoon 2 cups of pudding over the banana layer.
  6. Gently blend 1 cup of whipped cream into the remaining pudding and spoon over the pie bars.
  7. Top with the remaining Cool Whip, if that's what you're using. If you have whipped cream, wait to top until serving time.
  8. Refrigerate for 3 hours before serving. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
