You’re going to start with a  simple sugar cookie crust, and I use this one that we use for our famous fruit pizzas. It’s ‘sturdy’ enough to hold things on top of it.

Line your half sheet pan with parchment paper. This keeps it from sticking and makes it easy to get them out of the pan. If you don’t have parchment paper on hand, you can grease the pan, but using parchment paper  would definitely be the BEST option!

After baking the crust, let it cool completely. I like to stick it in the freezer for about 25 minutes. 

 

 

Next spread the banana pudding mix over and chill for about 10-15 minutes or until ready to serve. 

 

 

After spreading the pudding over, cut it into about 24 pieces.

(It’s easier to cut into pieces after putting the pudding on but before you add the whipped cream and vanilla wafers.)

 

 

Right before serving, add the dollops of whipped cream and a vanilla wafer.

TIPS FOR THIS COOKIE CAKE:

  • LET THE CRUST COOL COMPLETELY BEFORE SPREADING THE PUDDING MIX OVER.
  • FOR THE SIMPLEST WAY, YOU CAN SERVE EACH PIECE AND PUT REDDI WHIP (THE AEROSAL CAN KIND) AND A VANILLA WAFER ON EACH PIECE AS YOU SERVE.
  • IF YOU USE THE CAN OF REDDI WHIP, IT WILL FALL RATHER QUICKLY, SO JUST TAKE NOTE OF THAT. 
  • IF YOU WANT TO “DECORATE” THE ENTIRE SHEET CAKE WITH WHIPPED TOPPING AND VANILLA WAFERS, I SUGGEST MAKING FRESH WHIPPED TOPPING AND DOING IT THIS WAY. DANIELLE FROM LIVE WELL, BAKE OFTEN GIVES THE SECRET TO MAKING STABILIZED WHIPPED CREAM THAT WILL LAST FOR DAYS.

Notes

*Reddi Whip is great if you're serving immediately, but it does fall quickly.

*if you want whipped topping that doesn't fall, make stabilized whipped cream. It will last for a long time!
