A sumptuous marriage between cookies and whipped cream, an icebox cake is more than the sum of its parts. In its most basic form, crisp cookies or wafers are sandwiched between layers of billowy whipped cream or pudding then chilled in the fridge overnight. As the cake rests, the cookies soften and transform into a delicious and dense, cake-like texture.
Here, you’ll find fantastic flavor combinations starting with the Old School, that classic pairing of chocolate wafers and luscious whipped cream. Then you’ll be ready for treats like Luscious Lemon with its lemon curd filling and layers of ladyfingers. Or perhaps the Salty Milk Dud is more up your alley with its graham crackers and salty caramel pudding topped with billowy mounds of chocolate whipped cream.
A literary and licensing agent, Jean Sagendorph has worked with Food Network and Iron Chef America, among others. She is an icebox cake obsessive.
