Banana Trifle

Layers of banana, creamy whipped topping and crumbled crust.  What could be better?

Banana Trifle

-1 cup flour

-1/4 cup brown sugar

-1/2 cup cold butter

-1/2 cup Nilla wafers

-1 box banana instant pudding (I have a lot of trouble finding this, so I typically use banana cream instant pudding instead & it works just as well)

-2 cups cold milk

-3 ripe bananas, sliced

-1 (8 oz.) whipped topping

Begin by preheating your oven to 400 and mixing the flour and brown sugar.  Then cut in cold butter until crumbly and stir in Nilla wafers, or just pulse this in the food processor a bit.  Press then evenly on the bottom of an ungreased 9 inch dish and bake for 15 minutes or until lightly golden.  When it comes out stir it up with a fork to break up the pieces and turn it back into a crumbly mixture, then allow to cool completely.  In a large bowl prepare the pudding as the package directs with the 2 cups of milk. After it's set start layering your dessert!!

Begin with half of your crumb mixture, half of the banana slices, half the pudding, and half the whipped topping. Then repeat and refrigerate!!
