Banana Pudding Chessman Dessert


Banana Pudding Chessman Dessert

Well, the Labor Day weekend is upon us. For some it is a three-day weekend for others, just another day at work. I hope whatever you do this weekend you find some time to have fun with your families, friends or enjoy some alone time.

I have seen this dessert on Facebook, Pinterest and even Instagram. I thought with the holiday weekend coming up this would be a great time to try it! I am always looking for easy desserts that can feed a group of people. I used the Paula Deen recipe for Not Yo’ Mama’s Banana Pudding Recipe (click for link to original recipe).

Verdict:

The picture does not do the dessert justice. It was hard to get a decent picture of the dessert. But the flavor more than made up for the picture to us.

This was a very simple dessert. It took about 10 minutes to put together and 30 minutes to set up. The flavor was good. I added more bananas because it needed more flavor in the center section of the dessert. It is VERY sweet!

I love Chessman cookies so I thought this was great. My kids asked that next time I try it with Nilla Wafers. Those are their favorite cookies. Try it out with your favorite shortbread cookies.

      They are a shortbread butter cookie made by Pepperidge Farm in the US. They are stamped with the pieces from the chessboard hence their name, Chessman. Any buttery shortbread cookie can be substituted.

    I usually make this with Nilla Vanilla Wafers (and, I admit, Cool Whip), but since I LOVE Chessman cookies, I’ve gotta try this!
