I made this for our Labor Day Cook Out. Almost didn't get a picture as this is the last piece. Needles to say it went over big. I think my next try will be with peach's. I think I'm in love with these Ice Box Cakes. My family and friends love them too. They are so easy to make. NOTE: You can use Short Bread Cookies, Sugar Cookies, or Chocolate Chip if you don't want to bake. Just make sure you let it set over night.
