Entirely Homemade Banana Pudding
Banana pudding recipes are made up of three basic elements: pudding, cookies, and bananas. While the bananas are non-negotiable, the other two elements can be improved upon. So instead of pudding from a mix and storebought cookies, this banana pudding recipe calls for from-scratch vanilla pudding enriched with sweetened condensed milk and snappy homemade cookies. These elements are delicious on their own, but when they’re layered together and chilled, the flavors and textures marry into a downright irresistible dessert. The extra effort is worth it.
