Sweet Treats Saturday: Banana Cream Pie

So to help everyone keep to their New Year's resolutions, I'm posting a fruit based dessert. Banana cream pie.  That counts, right?  I've been making this recipe for a few years and it's always a hit.  It's really fast and easy to make, but it does take a little time in the refrigerator after you're done assembling it.

For the purpose of this recipe, I just used a ready made graham cracker pie crust.  I was in a hurry, but usually I make my own.  You can do either... graham cracker crusts are all over the web and are really easy to make.  Onto the filling:

1 8oz. package of cream cheese
1 cup of confectioner's sugar
1 8oz tub of thawed whip topping (ex. Cool Whip)
3 firm bananas, sliced
1 (3.4oz) package of instant vanilla pudding
1 1/3 cup cold milk

In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese and confectioner's sugar.  Fold in 1 cup of the whipped topping.  Spread over the crust.

Assembling the pie: the first layer 

Arrange the sliced bananas on top.

In the same bowl, whisk pudding mix and milk until thick.  Pour over the banana layer.
