Banana Split Dessert

What's not to like, makes my mouth water thinking about it!

Ingredients:

Crust

  • 1 cup margarine or butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup nuts
  • 3-4 bananas

Filling

    Ad
  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 large pkg. instant vanilla pudding

Directions:

Mix the crust ingredients and spread on a cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes at 375 degrees F. Crumble. Evenly scatter 1/2 in a 9x13 inch pan. The thickness of the bananas is your choice. Layer sliced bananas over the crumbs. Blend the filling ingredients and spread over the bananas. Top with remaining crumbs. Refrigerate then sit back and enjoy.

I have been tempted to try chocolate pudding and ice cream or strawberry ice cream and substitute the strawberries for the bananas. Sounds good!

Superb Banana Split Dessert

Sounds good, but have one question. Do you taste the dry milk powder? I have found some recipes that call for this have that strong taste of the powder. Maybe it is my overreaction to growing up on milk made from the skim milk powder. All my 5 sibs and I gag when we think of it . :~) (08/04/2008)
