    Banana Cream Layer Dessert

    Made this one for a bbq and it was a hit! I doubled the recipe and used maybe a 10x14 size dish? It was VERY full and I thought I way over did it but it was empty long before the end of the night. Very easy and perfect for summer since you don't have to bake it. You could totally change it up using any kind of pudding too.

    2 cups graham wafer crumbs
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 cup melted butter
    1 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
    1-1/4 cups confectioners sugar
    4 cups Cool Whip frozen whipped topping, completely thawed and divided
    2 -3 medium bananas ( don稚 use very ripe bananas)
    1 (135 gram) package cook and serve banana cream pudding and pie filling mix (do not use the instant, it must be the cooked kind)
    3 cups half-and-half cream

    Prepare an 11 x 7-inch baking pan.
    In a bowl, mix the cracker crumbs with cinnamon, 1/4 cup sugar and melted butter.
    Pat lightly into the baking pan.
    Refrigerate for 1 hour.
    Meanwhile, with an electric hand mixer, mix the cream cheese with confectioners sugar until well blended (about 2 minutes).
    Fold in 2 cups Cool Whip thawed topping.
    Remove the crust from the fridge; spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the crust.
    Return back to the fridge (at this point, the dessert may be left covered in the fridge overnight, and the last stage may be finished the next day if desired).
    Prepare the pudding mix on top of the stove in a heavy-bottomed saucepan (be careful not to scotch the bottom) or it can be prepared in the microwave, my preference is the microwave; transfer to refrigerator for 1 hour to thicken and cool.
    After 1 hour slice the bananas.
    Remove the dessert from the fridge; place the banana slices evenly over the cream cheese layer.
    Gently spread the prepared pudding over the bananas.
    Top with 2 cups (or more) Cool Whip topping.
    Refrigerate until ready to serve
