Mom's Country Banana Pudding


  • Bananas, sliced
  • Vanilla pudding, cook style or instant
  • Vanilla wafer cookies


In saucepan (mixing bowl for instant,) prepare pudding according to package directions.


Line the bottom of a large bowl or dish with whole vanilla wafers. Crumble a few wafers and set aside. Lay a layer of banana slices over the layer of wafers. Pour enough pudding over this to create a layer of pudding over top of the wafer and banana layers. Repeat this process until the bowl or dish is filled. Sprinkle the crumbled wafers over top.

Chill at least two hours before serving.
