This clever pudding idea comes from Paula Deen! This has been around for years and always intrigues me. Chessman cookies are delicious and banana pudding is, too…. so I figured this had to be a winner. It was! This is a simple recipe, too! Comes together easily and is fun to make! You can make this in any 9×13 pan that you have. I used a white decorative one but a metal brownie pan would work just fine, too. This pudding needs to chill once it is made. The longer it sits, the softer the Chessman cookies will get!
