Easy and Delicious Banana Pudding

Amy Herald


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!
