Pinch of salt

¼ cup mashed ripe banana

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the Cheesecake Topping:

1 (8 ounce) cream cheese package, room temperature

1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

1 (5 ounce) package instant banana pudding mix

Instructions

For the Blondie Crust:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 8×8 baking pan with non-stick method of your choice.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together butter and sugar until combined. Next whisk in the egg yolk, flour, salt, banana and vanilla until well combined.

Add blondie batter to pan and bake for 15-20 minutes until just set.

Cool to room temperature and prepare topping.

For the Cheesecake Topping:

Using your hand mixer, whip heavy cream in a medium sized bowl until soft peaks develop then slowly add in powdered sugar. Continue whipping until stiff peaks develop then refrigerate and clean beaters.

In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese until nice and fluffy with hand mixer.

Slowly add in sweetened condensed milk, banana pudding, and vanilla extract. Beat until well incorporated.

Carefully fold pre-made whipped cream into the cream cheese batter.

Pour and evenly spread cheesecake topping over blondie crust and freeze for at least 2 hours or until completely firm.

Garnish with nilla wafers and serve.
