Banana Pudding

This was the best thing I've ever made/tasted to date. It's embarrassingly easy and has the most unbelievable taste and texture. With that said, there are no excuses not to make this. Paula Deen, if your listening (or reading), I got nothin but love for ya.

Make this immediately and you're life will never be the same. 'Nuff said.

2 bags Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies 
6 to 8 bananas, sliced 
2 cups milk
1 (5-ounce) box instant French vanilla pudding 
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese softened 
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 
1 (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping thawed, or equal amount sweetened whipped cream

Line the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and layer bananas on top. 
In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer. Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Add the cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended. Pour the mixture over the cookies and bananas and cover with the remaining cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
