FOR THE CRUST:
  1. 2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
  2. 1 stick Unsalted Butter, melted

FOR THE FILLING:
  1. 16 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Softened
  2. 3-½ ounces, weight Banana Pudding Mix
  3. ⅓ cups Sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  5. ½ cups Milk, Plus More As Needed

Preparation
  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • In a medium sized bowl, add the graham cracker crumbs and the melted butter and stir. Using a 9X9-inch pan press the graham cracker crust mixture into the bottom of the pan making sure that you have a solid bottom. Bake crust for 5 minutes. Remove pan from oven and allow crust to completely cool before topping it with the rest of the cake.
  • In a separate bowl, blend the cream cheese until creamy. Add the pudding mix, sugar, vanilla extract, and milk. Beat until creamy. The filling should be creamy. If it still appears slightly thick and clumpy, add 1 teaspoon of milk at a time until it is creamy.
