Queen’s Gambit Banana Pudding

My wonderfull wife, Julie, made this delicious Banana Pudding that we called Queen’s Gambit pudding after the popular TV show and because of the Chessmen cookies that adorn the top.

We were inspired by the great Banana Pudding served at a neighbor’s party that we attended. Julie immediately started researching recipes.

Yummy!
