With summer in full swing in Cajun country, I am making a few of my favorite summer desserts. I just love to cool down after a dip in the pool with a luscious cold treat. Think cool, think yummy, and think sinfully delicious! Guaranteed to please your family and guests, and just perfect for your Father's Day celebration! Bon appetit!
Banana Pudding Squares
2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
1/4 cup sugar
4 to 5 tbs.'s butter, melted
Combine and press evenly into a greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish and bake @ 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool completely and evenly place a layer of bananas on top of crust and set aside. Make filling.
2 large cans Pet milk
1 cup sugar
2 medium bananas, sliced
Heat milk in medium saucepan and bring just to a boil. Remove from
heat. Pour the eggs into the milk and return to low heat and add
sugar. Continue cooking on low, stirring constantly, until mixture
begins to thicken. Remove from heat and pour over prepared crust. Cover and chill for 2 hours and top with whipped cream. (recipe below)
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Place the whipping cream and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Stir in
the powdered sugar and mix on low, with an electric hand mixer until
peaks form. ( about 3 to 4 minutes) Spread filling evenly on top of bananas and chill for 2 hours.
Drizzle with chocolate syrup and top with chopped pecans and cherries if desired. Divine!
And here are a few more family faves that are just heavenly on a hot day.
