Easy Southern Banana Pudding

This is based on an old recipe from a box of Nilla Wafers. The original recipe uses Nilla Wafers and Jello Instant Pudding, neither of which works for most of my family. In this easy variation, I use Enjoy Life soft-baked gingerbread spice cookies (nut- and gluten-free, available at Whole Foods) and Trader Joe's instant pudding (soy-free and vegetarian). In about 20 minutes, you can put together one of the most popular desserts I've made in a while!

Directions

  1. Pour milk into large mixing bowl. Stir in instant pudding powder. Beat with wire whisk for a couple minutes until dissolved. Let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Mush the cookies fairly flat, either between waxed paper with a rolling pin or just with your hands.
  3. Arrange the dessert in layers -- half the cookies, half the banana slices, half the pudding, and repeat.
