While searching for THE authentic original Southern banana pudding recipe one can find that there are thousands out there…
Ask about banana pudding Britney P. in Pascagoula, Mississippi; she serves the mushy creamy yellow dessert at the small Annex Restaurant. Asking how to prepare it, will get you a smile and a…”Oh, it is awfully easy! … Just take vanilla wafers, peeled and sliced ripe bananas, and banana flavored Jello pudding…If are in a hurry you can mix the banana slices with the pudding…”
Britney seems to think that everyone in this world knows how to make the dessert.
In Moss Point, Mississippi, someone added: “The cookies should not be soggy!…Try making it with a graham cracker ready made pie crust…”
HOW TO MAKE A SIMPLE NORTH AMERICAN SOUTHERN BANANA PUDDING PIE IN A GRAHAM CRACKER READY MADE PIE CRUST WITH BUD’S BEST COOKIES BITE SIZE VANILLA WAFERS
1 3.4 oz (96 gr) box of Jello Banana Cream Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
2 cups of cold milk (I used 2%)
1 ready made graham pie crust (about 9 inches size)
3 ripe bananas, peeled, sliced very thin
20 Bud’s Best Cookies bite size vanilla wafers
Enough whipped cream to decorate the top of the pie
Remove the plastic top of the ready made graham pie crust and line the bottom with very thinly sliced 1 and 1/2 banana. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the cold milk and the Jello Banana Cream Instant Pudding powder. Whisk for 1 minute, add the liqueur, continue whisking and when the cream is soft divide it in two portions. Cover the bottom layer of banana with half of the banana cream. Insert and layer the vanilla wafers in the layer of banana cream. Top the wafers with the second layer of banana cream. Decorate the top of the pie with whipped cream and refrigerate for about 2 hours.
