This is a variation I thought up for the traditional Nabisco Chocolate Wafer Icebox Cake. It's a really (really!) great twist--made better by the fact that Moravian cookies now come in such a wide range of flavors...lots of room to play around! This is a quick and easy dessert that tastes wonderful.more

cups heavy cream
tablespoon vanilla extract
packs (usually come in large tubes) Moravian cookies
In a large bowl, beat cream, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. On a flat serving plate, arrange 7 cookies side by side in a circle, keeping 1 cookie in the center. Spread with 1/2 cup whipped cream, making a 7-inch circle. Repeat with remaining cookies and cream, making 11 layers of cookies and ending with a layer of cream (there will be a few cookies left over). Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
