1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (recommended: Jiffy)
2 1/2 cups cold heavy cream, divided
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
5 bananas, sliced, plus additional for garnish
2 (9-ounce) packages chocolate wafer cookies
Using a baby off-set spatula is a great tool to help smooth out the peanut butter whipped cream in your springform pan.
