Old Fashioned Banana Pudding

Banana pudding is a very old fashioned dessert generally consisting of repeated layers of sweet vanilla flavored custard, cookies (usually Vanilla Wafers or ladyfingers) and sliced fresh bananas placed in a dish and served, topped with whipped cream. It’s so simple and yet so deliciously satisfying.
