Mrs. Wood's Cream Cheese Banana Pudding
She shared this recipe in our church cookbook. When I made this pudding for my family, they immediately asked when I would make it again.
Mrs. Wood is now a widow, but I always think of her and her dear husband when I make or share this recipe.
I have updated the original recipe a bit for clarity.
When I make this, I often use reduced-fat cream cheese, milk, and Cool Whip.
