Banana Pudding Cheesecake Squares

  • Author: Marsha



For the Crust:

2 cups crushed vanilla wafers

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Cheesecake Filling:

2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 ripe bananas, mashed

For the Banana Pudding Layer:

1 package (3.4 oz) instant banana pudding mix

2 cups cold milk

1 cup whipped cream or whipped topping

For the Topping:

1 cup whipped cream or whipped topping

Sliced bananas for garnish

Vanilla wafers for garnish


Prepare the Crust: Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C). In a medium bowl, combine the crushed vanilla wafers and melted butter. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9×9-inch baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and set aside.


Make the Cheesecake Filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract and mashed bananas. Pour the filling over the prepared crust.


Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the center is set and the edges are lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature.


Prepare the Banana Pudding Layer: In a medium bowl, whisk together the banana pudding mix and cold milk until smooth. Fold in the whipped cream. Spread the pudding mixture over the cooled cheesecake layer.


Add the Topping: Spread the whipped cream over the banana pudding layer. Garnish with sliced bananas and vanilla wafers.


Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight, before serving.


Cut into squares and serve chilled.
