Just put 2 cups heavy cream, 1/4 cup confectioners sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a chilled mixing bowl. Whip to soft peaks. Take 24 Nabisco wafers. With 6 cookies at a time, put 1 Tablespoon of your whipped cream on top of each one, and then stack them (it's a little messy - lol). Then put all of the stacks together side by side so that you have a very long cake that's 24 cookies long. Use the extra whipped cream to top the sides and ends with whipped cream. Put in fridge 6 hours or overnight to set.
When you're ready to serve, you can decorate it with mini chocolate chips, mini m&ms, shaved chocolate, etc. Just made it today; delish!
Do you work for ATK?
Parfaits or an ice-cream sundae bar. Lay out all your add-on's and let your guests make their own.

Or same plus good purchased meringues.
Or aged parmesan with glasses of vin Santo .
Or you can make an icebox cake with whipped cream and packaged cookies.
If you make a creme anglaise on the stove top beforehand to dollop over the fruit it'll dress it up nicely.
Or how about a summer berry pudding? Merrill Stubbs has a recipe for it on here: https://food52.com/recipes/13392-berry-summer-pudding
