Why You Will LOVE This Dessert

I honestly think I like no bake desserts best. One, they’re easy. Two, they’re so good. And three, well, three is the major draw: it was 88° here last week and I did NOT want to turn on my oven. As it was, we had to turn on the A/C so Jordan could go to sleep.

The A/C. 88°. In April. <–Why I hate summer in Sacramento.

Normally, my favorite layered dessert to make are the “lush” variety. You know, like Coconut Cheesecake or Strawberry Shortcake. Those have  layer of crumbled cookie crust topped with layers of pudding and whipped cream. This dessert is very similar, except it’s even easier, if that’s even possible.

The difference is that this is an icebox cake: it’s pudding and whipped cream layered with whole cookies. The pudding makes the cookies soft enough to slice into quasi-cake slices. No crushing, no rolling, no ziploc bag or melted butter.

I didn’t think no bake desserts could get any easier, but I was wrong.
