Cookies and Cream (An Icebox Cake)

Serves: Um, my family of 6 (but it should serve more; it really should; we have issues)

Prep time: 15 minutes

Fridge time: 24 hours

Cost: $5.12 (Okay, I know I've been highlighting some sort of pricey desserts lately, but May is my holiday month, okay. Besides, this is way cheaper than you'd get even one teeny from-a-box-of-some-sort dessert at a chain restaurant.)

(cookies: $3, cream: $2, sugar: .12)

1 box Nabisco Chocolate Wafers

1 pint cream

3/4 C sugar

2 tsp vanilla

Beginning by whipping your cream. Pour it in a bowl and blend it until soft peaks form. When they do, add the sugar and vanilla. Whip or beat until firmer peaks form. 

Put a blob of it on the bottom of a salad bowl and spread that around. Make one layer of cookies, breaking some if you need to so they don't overlap. Add more whipped cream and spread. Add another layer of cookies. Repeat until you top it off with a thin layer of whipped cream. 

Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours or until the cookies are perfectly soft.
