top with whipped cream and a vanilla wafer

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • If you choose you can easily break up the cookies within the layers to ensure you get Vanilla wafers in every bite.
  • You can substitute your vanilla wafers for Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies if you choose or even graham crackers. 
  • Add a dollop of whipping cream to the top or pipe on the topping to make it even fancier. Rather than whole cookies, you can also add some sliced bananas with some cookie crumbles on top. 
  • You can enjoy these right away, but I prefer to let them sit for at least 3 hours in the fridge. This allows the cookies to soften making them the consistency of a delicious cake.
