Author Notes

I had never made Banana Pudding before. It’s just never been on my radar as something that we’d enjoy more than other dessert options. We do love chocolate in our house! But then I had the opportunity to join a virtual recipe swap and my partner’s recipe was none other than Banana Pudding. So I put my spin on her recipe and the end result? Butter Cookie Banana Pudding – and it is divine!

Method says to add cream cheese, but I see no cream cheese in the ingredients list. Can you let us know?

looks tasty. Is the taste very banana-y or vanilla/banana. I've been wanting to make something like this but I'm not a good baker.

You can definitely leave the banana out for a more vanilla taste and it's still delicious! I have no doubt you could tackle this recipe - give it a try!
