Nutty Banana Cream Pie-in-a-Bowl

Peanut Crunch:
1 cup Gold Medal all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup peanuts

Remaining ingredients:
1 package banana instant pudding mix (4-serving size)
2 cups cold milk
3 ripe medium bananas, sliced
1 container frozen whipped topping (3 cups), thawed

Preheat oven to 400F.

Prepare Peanut crunch: Mix flour and brown sugar in large bowl. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knifes, until mixture is crumbly. Stir in peanuts.

Press evenly on bottom of ungreased square pan, 9 x 9 x2-inches. Bake about 15 minutes or until light brown. Stir to break up. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Prepare pudding mix as directed on package, using 2 cups milk. Layer half of the peanut crunch, pudding, bananas and whipped topping in 2-quart serving bowl (looks nice in a trifle bowl); repeat layers. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Store covered in refrigerator.

Makes 8 servings
