6 to 8 bananas, sliced
2 cups milk
1 (5-ounce) large box Jello instant French vanilla pudding
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

Line the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch dish with 1 bag of cookies

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
