Stir in melted butter and 1/2 teaspoon of the vanilla until well blended. In ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish, press cookie crumb mixture firmly in bottom. Set aside.

Beat in 2 cups of the whipped topping. Spread over cookie crust. Place 2 1/2 cups banana slices in single layer over cream cheese mixture.

Expert Tips

  • To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper, and place on microwavable plate; microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.
  • To ripen bananas quickly, place them in a paper bag at room temperature for 1 to 2 days.
