It's Labor Day weekend and while many people see this as the last hurrah of the summer before they cover the grill and patio furniture, I see it as the begining of cool crisp fall! But for everyone who clings to this as a summer holiday, here is a recipe I grew up on in Tennessee and it was always a special treat even though it is rediculously easy.

Summer fine southern style banana pudding!

Box of Vanilla Wafers
Cool Whip
Banana Pudding (vanilla works too)
2 bananas

1. Line the bottom of your dish with vanilla wafers and prop a layer up on the sides too. You can use an old piece of tupperware if you want to but my aunt swears that dessert always tastes better in a pretty glass dish so in true southern style, I busted out the parfait dish. Id does look nice, doesn't it?

2. Make the pudding exactally like the directions on the back of the box direct. Slice up your bananas and mix in the pudding. If you really like bananas, add more. If you are more into the pudding, add less. Two bananas are perfect for my pallate. If the vanilla wafers on the side fall down, no need to stress- just shove some more down the side after you fill the dish with pudding or serve to your guests with that side facing the wall Cheesy

3. Chill in the fridge until the pudding sets. After it "hardens" plop a healthy serving of cool whip on top. Feel free to get fancy and garnish with more wafers, nuts, or even a pretty sprig of mint.

Variations: I have celiac so I can't eat anything with gluten (wheat/barley/rye) in it so I made a special batch just for me with vanilla k-toos which are similar to vanilla/golden oreos. I just opened them in half and put the iced side sunny side up. I was also thinking pecan sandies may be a nice spin as well. If you had a chocolate tooth (and don't we all?) you could use chocolate pudding and for the cookies use normal oreos, chocolate chip cookies, or go super fancy and use milano cookies. This of course would not make it banana pudding but come on- CHOCOLATE! Wink

Oh! Om nom nom! This is making me so hungry for my momma's banana pudding, it is obscene!

She always made it with custard, but that requires the oven and makes the house hot.... so maybe I should try it this way. I will post the results of my culinary experimentations!  Wink

Mmmm I love banana pudding.   Grin  Whenever we go to my bf's aunt's house, they have this - and it's always gone by the end of the day. 

This looks like a relatively easy recipe - I'll have to try it! Thanks!   Wink
