Capi Peck


serves 12-16


2 c. flour

1 c. melted butter, cooled

1 c. chopped pecans

Pudding Layer:

2 c. cold whole milk

1 c. instant vanilla pudding mix

Cream Cheese Layer:

1 c. whipping cream

8 oz. cream cheese

1 c. sifted powdered sugar

Banana Layer:

2 to 3 ripe bananas, thinly sliced


2 c. whipping cream

1/2 c. chopped pecans, toasted

1/2 c. flaked coconut, toasted

To make the Crust: mix flour, butter and pecans. Pat evenly into a 9 x 13

pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Let cool completely before continuing

with next layers.

To make the Cream Cheese Layer: beat cream cheese and whipping cream together in an

electric mixer. Add powdered sugar and continue to beat until smooth & thick.

Spread evenly over cooled crust.

To make the Pudding Layer: whisk milk with pudding mix until thickened.

Spread carefully and evenly over the cream cheese layer.

NOTE: You may make a day ahead up to this step. Cover & refrigerate until ready to

cover with bananas & topping.

Banana Layer: Cover pudding layer with sliced bananas.

To make the Topping: beat whipping cream until fluffy and spreadable. Gently spread

over banana layer pushing whipped cream to the edges of the pan, covering the

bananas well. Sprinkle top with toasted pecans and toasted coconut.

For the berries:

6 cups Arkansas strawberries, capped and sliced

1/2 c. sugar

Wash and cap the berries. Place sugar in a mixing bowl and add the sliced

berries. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally so

that the berry juices are drawn out. Just before serving, cut banana delight

into 12 to 16 pieces and ladle the juicy

strawberries over. YUM!
