Strawberry Cream Ice Box Cake

My recipe of the day is for Strawberry Cream Ice Box cake, which is a super easy no-bake dessert made by layering whipped cream, cookies and fresh berries with a little bit extra thrown in.
Then  it  gets refrigerated overnight to set  up.
It might seem overly simplistic in its design,   but it turns out  much better than you  might expect.
I  think  of it as the  strange lovechild of a strawberry  shortcake and a tiramisu.
If you are not  into  cool  whip you  can make your own whipped cream from  scratch, but I think the cool whip is  slightly more stable.
This does have a short shelf life, so  plan to eat it all on the same day. It will tend to weep or  become soggy if you try to save it. So make some friends and let it all disappear in one sitting  (which is not difficult to do!)
And  don’t  forget to sign up for the  giveaway below.   Today  is the last day.
