(by Shirley McNevich)
1 - 6oz. box Jell-O banana cream OR vanilla pudding/pie filling (NOT INSTANT)
3 egg yolks
3 3/4 cups milk
24 or so vanilla wafers
1 large ripe banana (sliced into coin shaped pieces)
1 - 8oz. Cool Whip (thawed)
Slightly beat the egg yolks in a cup. In a saucepan over medium heat add pudding mix, beaten egg yolks, milk--cook and stir until it comes to a boil. Once boiling, remove from heat--place a piece of Saran wrap on top of the pudding (touching the pudding)--set aside to cool. Once cooled, remove the Saran wrap and stir the pudding well. Arrange a layer of vanilla wafers on the bottom of a 2 qt. dish. Make a layer of banana pieces on top of the vanilla wafer layer. Scoop half of the pudding mixture on top of the banana layer. Repeat three more layers (vanilla wafers, then bananas, then remaining pudding) on top of the pudding layer. Spread Cool Whip on top of the final pudding layer--refrigerate until very cold.
