  • 3/4 cup real salted butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup crushed Nilla wafers


  • 1 - 8 oz package cream cheese softened
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup frozen whipped topping (COOL WHIP) thawed
  • 2 bananas sliced
  • 1 4 oz package instant banana cream pudding
  • 2 cups cold milk


  • remaining COOL WHIP
  • 1/2 cup crushed Nilla wafers


  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Spray an 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Prepare crust by adding the butter and flour to a bowl and blend using a large fork or pastry blender.
  • Add crushed Nilla wafers and mix (don't crush the wafers too small, leave some bigger pieces for a crunch.)
  • Press mixture into the bottom of prepared baking dish.
  • The easiest way to do this is to put a little flour on your fingers and press it down.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until light golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool.
  • While the crust is cooling prepare the filling.
  • In a large bowl using a stand mixer or a hand mixer add the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar.
  • Cream the mixture until smooth.
  • Stir in one cup COOL WHIP and set aside.
  • Prepare pudding according to package directions (adding the 2 cups cold milk).
  • Using a wire whisk, mix the pudding until thickened.
  • When the crust is completely cooled spread on the cream cheese mixture evenly.
  • Then add a single layer of sliced bananas.
  • Next, add the prepared banana cream pudding and spread evenly.
  • Top with remaining COOL WHIP
  • Sprinkle the crushed vanilla wafers evenly over the top.
  • Chill for at least 2 - 3 hours before serving.
