2 pkgs (4serving size) instant vanilla pudding powder
4 cups milk
84 (approx) UNSALTED soda crackers
2 tubs frozen Cool whip topping thawed
Beat pudding powder and milk together in bowl until smooth.
Spread a thin film of the pudding mix in a 9x13 pan so crackers will not shift around. Add a layer of crackers over this. Spread about 1/3 of the pudding mix over these crackers. Spread 1/3 of the Cool whip over the pudding. Repeat the layers twice more. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate for at least 24 hrs to allow crackers time to absorb moisture from pudding and Cool whip. Longer is better! After crackers softened, drained crushed pineapple, sliced bananas or any other fruit sauce can be put on top or it can just be left plain. The crackers soften and taste just like the vanilla slices pastry from the bakery! Hope you enjoy this recipe.
