    Yummy! This was a hit with my family. I did the shortcut version and even forgot the sour cream. Will definitely make this again and again!

    Great summer dessert for your peanut butter lovers!

    This is the best banana pudding recipe I've ever tried. I made it 2 days before we served it, so the cookies were soft, but somehow still had a slightly crunchy texture that reminded us of a graham cracker crust. My husband and 12-year-old daughter were fighting over the last serving. I will definitely make this one again.

    I made the shortcut version and it was great! I have never been able to make homemade pudding any better than Jello instant! At first I thought that there was not enough pudding, but after it sat overnight, everything settled and softened. It was pretty and soooo gooooood!

    My family loved it and we will be using this recipe again! The only changes I made were to use a pinch of salt to bring out the flavor of the pudding more and I used sugar free CoolWhip in place of the sweet cream! YUMMY!

    I thought the taste was great despite the fact the pudding never really got to a true pudding texture. It was almost like a thick cake mix batter. Not sure what I did wrong and I followed the receipe exactly just like I do anytime I make something for the first time. I did use 2% milk and maybe that was the difference. I think I might try whole milk next time but otherwise, it was a hit. If anyone has any suggestions about how to make it thicker, I will sure take them. It's definitely better than that excuse for store bought pudding.

    To make sure the pudding thickens, whisk constantly for the entire 20 minutes until it is thick and bubbling. The only thing I'd do differently is double the recipe - I didn't feel like I had enough pudding to fill up my trifle dish. Tasted delicious. Fun twist on the old, unbeatable classic.

    Fantastic!! I used the short cut version of this recipe and thought it was the best banana pudding I've ever had! Rave reviews from the hubby and friends! Even the kids ate it up quickly! It's a keeper recipe!

    I followed the directions exactly but it never would thicken. Once it was in the fridge, it became even runnier. I would make this again either with more flour on higher heat, or just do the instant pudding mix version. Great concept, but I was so disappointed.

    This dessert was a hit with my family. The recipe is perfect. I love the pudding. I think this is my family's new favorite dessert. Thanks!!

    Great!!! We used chocolate pudding instead of vanilla, because chocolate is always better.

    I made this on sunday for desert for my family. My husband went crazy over it. I doubled the recipe and it still was not enough. He wants it again for his birthday this month. Thanks for a great recipe. The only thing I did not add was the sweet whipping cream.

    Fantastic! The combination of flavors in this recipe is terrific. I did the regular version of the recipe (cooking the pudding), and I too came up a little short of pudding for the bowl I used; I just did one layer of pudding instead of two. It kept wonderfully in the refrigerator for several days. This is my new go-to recipe for banana pudding!

    My kids LOVED this! I made it with Mother's peanut butter gaucho cookies. Very easy dessert and very satisfying.

    We'll see what kind of reviews this gets at my Hubby's Work Cook Out tomorrow, but as for now I'm totally pleased. HOWEVER, you might as well go ahead and double the pudding recipe to begin with. Otherwise, you're going to end up with WAAAAY too much Nutter Butter and Bananas for the pudding. I used 6 bananas and a whole pkg. of Nutter Butters with the double pudding recipe and I think its going to be great!

    WOW, so easy to make and beautiful too! A footed trifle bowl was $6 at walmart (makes the dessert more showy). Made this one several times and got raves each time. Also, once substitued the nutter butters with vienna finger sandwich cookies for my Aunt who doesn't care for the nutter butter. Delicious!!!!! The longer you can let it chill...the better! When traveling to family get togethers we take a cooler with ice and put the trifle dish (covered w/plastic wrap) down in the ice. The folk you are visiting like this, because they don't have to rearrange their fridge for your food.

    Excellent! I made a triple batch for a family reunion and had a little left over. My daughter put the left over pudding in freezer pops. Yummy frozen too!

    This is a family and work favorite. I use the short cut recipe and it is delicious. Everyone loves this dish!

    Instead of cooking the pudding, you can always use Eagle Brand's condensed milk. Same diff, and soooo yummy! If you're going to save time, err on what actually tastes homemade and not boxed pudding!!!

    I took this to a cookout and it was eaten so quickly. What a great combo....PB cookies and banana pudding. I will definitely only make my banana pudding this way in the future!

    So good! It was really a hit at the office. I'll definitely make this again!

    I made this for a class reunion and everyone raved about it! I used the shortcut version and thought it was fabulous. The Nutter Butters really make all the difference.

    what did we do wrong???? we put the eggs and such over heat and at the end we had to strain it becuase there was scrambled egg pieces in it......overall it was good but we added A LOT OF SUGAR AND VANILLA

    I made this today for Easter. I used the shortcut method and used sugar-free pudding and sugar-free Cool Whip. Still it was very good and I cut some calories!

    Made this to take to the ex and his wife's house for grandsons going away party. Ex told me that he hoped I was leaving the left overs for him. Daughter and him started debating who was going to get them. I think it is a winner.

  • AmyNJames Posted: 04/01/13

    I doubled the pudding recipe as suggested in other reviews and was glad I did. The pudding has a light, vanilla flavor. I will increase the vanilla the next time I make this. This dish was a hit at the family Easter gathering.

    Help!!! I followed the recipe exactly. I did the ice thing. It's 3 hours later and the pudding is still runny???

  • NorthernSpie Posted: 01/24/14

    Cold day in the North Country. Saw the recipe on Facebook and just happened to have a bunch of bananas and sent my husband to the convenient store for cookies. Took advantage of the weather and, instead of using ice to chill the pudding, used the snow outside the kitchen door. Filled a large pan with snow, put the pan in the sink, stuck the saucepan in the pan, and cooled the pudding down! Probably would have been fun to do with kids on a snow day! Best part of course was eating it and it's a winner. Will make again, with or without snow!

    3 stars as written because it would thicken properly. I had to add more flour in a little milk and cook longer. Next time I will use only the yolks of 3 large eggs and 1/2 cup flour, and a good pinch of salt. I used whipped topping instead of whipping cream. The taste was good and we enjoyed it in the end.

  • Susan718 Posted: 07/05/14

    I made this for the Fourth- delicious and creamy. I'm glad I read other reviews because I cooked the pudding until it bubbled and really thickened and it made a great dessert!
