My Almost Famous Recipe

I enjoy cooking though I am certainly not a gourmet chef.  I frequently cruise the internet for new recipes to try.  Once in a blue moon, I find a recipe that becomes something I make over and over again.  This is one of those recipes.  It is the one recipe for which I am famous (Well, famous in my own little universe anyway!)  It is one recipe that people actually request I make.  If I take it somewhere, people always ask for the recipe.  I made it a couple weekends ago and decided it wasn’t fair for me to keep the recipe to myself any longer - after all, I didn’t create it; I just found it.  I wanted to post it here for my girls and for my readers!
So here it is - My Almost World Famous Banana Pudding
5 medium bananas
1 large package (5 oz) instant vanilla pudding                  
2 cups milk
16 oz. container of Cool Whip
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 box vanilla wafers

In a large bowl, mix the pudding with 2 cups cold milk. 

 Once it begins to thicken slightly, add the sweetened condensed milk.
Then, fold in half of the Cool Whip.

Set the mixture aside, and slice the bananas.

In a casserole dish, layer pudding, wafers, and bananas.  Repeat the layers until you have used all the pudding mixture and bananas.  (If using a 13x9 dish, you can get two layers.)  Top with the remaining Cool Whip.

At first, the pudding mixture will seem a little runny, but if you let it set in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving, it will be perfect!!
