It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I’ve spent the day tidying up, wrapping presents, and I’m about to hit the kitchen to whip up some more Christmas treats. I hope all of you are gearing up for our big holiday, and, if you’re traveling, please be safe. I heard on the radio today that 93 million Americans are moving around the country today as they travel home for Christmas. Chances are that includes a few of you, so be careful out there!
Not to brag, but check out my bows. My mom worked in the customer service department at Dillards for a while when I was a kid which means she became extremely proficient at wrapping packages. She has passed on her bow making skills to my sister and I, and every year we deck out our packages with the prettiest ribbon we can find. Unfortunately, I’m not as good as my sister, and neither of us can touch Mom, but, as a non-creative person, I’m pretty proud!
I know most of you will be stepping away from the computer in the next few days so my posts are going to be short and sweet. I’m going to take the opportunity to share some of the recipes I’ll be making to take to various friends and neighbors over the next few days. First up, is THE banana pudding recipe. I told you at Thanksgiving that this recipe has become a family favorite in the last few years, and I can honestly say I’ve never tasted a better banana pudding. Today, I want to share it will all of you! If you are still looking for something tasty to take to your holiday gathering, look no further!
Two Large Boxes Vanilla Instant Pudding
Two Cups Half & Half
Two Cups Heavy Cream
One Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
One Carton Extra Creamy Cool Whip
One Box Vanilla Wafers
Mix pudding, half & half, and heavy cream in a large bowl until combined. Add sweetened condensed milk. Fold in whip cream. Layer the bananas and vanilla wafers with the pudding mixture. Voila! This is really best if served the 2nd day.
See how easy this is? It would be a great last minute addition to any holiday table. Fair warning, this recipe makes a ton! I cut it in half when I made it yesterday, but, if you make the whole thing, don’t worry about leftovers. This goes fast!
I hope all of you are starting your holiday weekend off with a bang today! I’ll be back tomorrow with another great family recipe!
What is something you always make for Christmas?
