Author Notes: Adapted from Nabisco, this is the easiest and simplest summer no-bake dessert. The layers of not-too-sweet chocolate wafers soften between billowy mounds of vanilla whipped cream.Posie (Harwood) Brien

Makes: one 9-inch cake

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 13 ounces Nabisco chocolate wafers (1 1/2 packages), or other thin cookie
  1. With a whisk or a stand mixer fit with a whisk attachment, whip the cream and vanilla together to stiff peaks.
  2. On a cake stand or large plate, arrange 7 wafer cookies in a circle (1 in the middle, six around the edges). Spread a layer of whipped cream on top, then another circle of cookies, then whipped cream, until you run out. Finish with a top layer of whipped cream.
  3. Refrigerate the cake overnight (or for at least 8 hours). Serve.
