Cool and Creamy Banana Cream Pie or Pudding

Banana Cream Pie
1/2 cup Watkins Vanilla Dessert Mix
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 1/ 2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon Watkins Double Strength Vanilla Extract
1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
1 graham cracker crust (9 inches)
2 medium firm bananas, sliced
Additional banana slices optional

Mix Vanilla Dessert Mix, sugar, and water in a 1 quart/1 Liter or larger microwave-safe bowl. Stir in milk.

Microwave on HIGH uncovered for 7 to 12 minutes depending on the strength of your microwave or until mixture begins to boil and thicken, stirring every 2 to 3 minutes. Be very careful when stirring and removing bowl from microwave because pudding bubbles up and bowl will be very hot. Remove from microwave and cool.

Mix in Vanilla Extract. Fold in 2 cups whipped topping; then add sliced bananas. Pour mixture into 9-inch graham cracker crust for pie or into individual bowls for pudding. Chill completely in refrigerator.

Top with remaining whipped topping. Garnish with additional banana slices if desired when ready to serve. Makes 8 servings.
