  • 1 24 count package ready to bake sugar cookie dough
  • 1 3.4 ounce box instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 ½ cups (355ml) nonfat milk
  • 2 medium bananas
  • Whipped Cream


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray mini muffin pans with nonstick baking spray (the kind with flour) or grease and flour the pans. Don’t skip this step or your cookies will stick.
  • Place one cookie dough ball in each muffin pan cavity. Bake 18-22 minutes or until the cookies are fully baked.
  • Cool 5-10 minutes, then use the back of a wooden spoon handle or the rounded part of a ½ teaspoon to press the cookie into a cup.
  • Cool completely before trying to remove. Use a butter knife to carefully loosen and pop the cookie cup out of the muffin pan.
  • Whisk together pudding mix and milk and let sit until soft set, about 5 minutes.
  • Slice bananas. Add one slice to the bottom of each cookie cup.
  • Fill cookie cup with pudding, then top with whipped cream and another slice of banana.
  • Serve immediately. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
  • To make ahead: assemble but do not add whipped cream or banana garnish until right before serving. Banana will brown when exposed to air.



  • You will have pudding left over. If you prefer, you can substitute already made pudding cups in place of making instant pudding.
  • Make my homemade whipped cream or use a can of Reddi-whip, or you can use cool whip.
  • Feel free to use banana pudding instead of vanilla.
