Banana Cream Pie

I've been asked to share my banana cream pie recipe a few times recently, which meant I actually have to write it down.  So here it goes:

Kendra's Banana Cream Pie

Pie crust (graham cracker crust or pie pastry- whichever you prefer)
8 oz cream cheese (room temp)
1 cup powder sugar
8 oz container Whip cream
1 tsp vanilla
4 oz box instant vanilla pudding
1 cup milk
2 bananas

Prepare the crust.  If using a pie pastry, cook and cool completely.
Cream filling:
In mixer take room temperature cream cheese, whip.  Add the powdered sugar, mix until combined.  Add the vanilla.
In a separate small bowl mix together the pudding mix and the milk.  Stir until smooth.  Add to the cream cheese mixture and mix until combined.
Stir in ¾ of the tub of the Whip Cream.
Slice the banana into the crust, move it around so it covers the bottom evenly.  Cover with the cream cheese mixture.  Spread the rest of the Whip Cream on top.
