Meri McGloin


2-3 packs: Nabisco® Famous Chocolate Wafer Cookies
1 cup room temperature butter
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoon whole milk
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
¾ cup cocoa powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
Whipped Cream
3 cups heavy cream
½ cup powdered sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Make the whipped cream: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine all ingredients and whip until firm peaks form. Refrigerate.
2. Grease a 5-by-9½-inch loaf pan and line with plastic wrap, leaving a 2 inch overhang on all sides.
3. Spoon a thin layer of whipped cream over bottom and sides of pan. Line pan with layer of cookies, lengthwise. Spread a layer of whipped cream over cookies and repeat until pan is full. (Reserve some whipped cream and cookies.)
4. Spread a layer of whipped cream over top to seal, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 day.
5. Remove plastic wrap on top. Use the bottom layer of plastic to pull cake from pan; invert onto a platter. Spread reserved whipped cream and cookie crumbles on top. Slice using a knife warmed under hot water and serve.
