Banana Pudding Cheesecake #SundaySupper

Banana cream pie meets cheesecake in this easy to make dessert. 

Banana Pudding Cheesecake #Sunday Supper
                This weeks Sunday Supper theme is a Big Virtual Picnic and I couldn't think of something better to bring to a picnic then a Banana Pudding Cheesecake.
For the the banana cream pie lover I don't think dessert gets much better then this.
Banana cream pie meets cheesecake.
Colt said it's so good it doesn't even need the whip cream.
Just for the record Colt already put in his order for another Banana Pudding Cheesecake for our Birthday, it's that amazing!
Since we share a Birthday it was a huge relief we both agreed on dessert this year.

In a large bowl combine  12 whole graham cracker crumbs and 1/4 cup sugar. Mix until well combined.
Add 1/2 cup melted butter and stir until combined.Banana-Pudding-Cheesecake-Graham-Cracker-Crust.jpg
Press graham cracker mixture evenly across the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate.
I find a measuring cup works well for pressing the crumbs evenly into the bottom and sides.
Bake crust in a 375 degree oven for 7 minutes or until lightly brown.
Cool completely.

Slowly add 2 cups of the milk mixture to the egg yolks while mixing to temper egg yolks.
This prevents the eggs from curdling.

Pour egg yolk mixture back into milk mixture and return to a simmer, cook an additional 3-5 minutes while stirring until thickened.
Remove from heat and whisk in 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract.

Cream 16 ounces room temperature cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
Add vanilla pudding and mix until well combined.
Scrapes sides of bowl well.
