Creamy and Fruity Ice Box Cake
This recipe comes together quickly and tastes amazing. Sweet layers of cream, graham crackers, and fruit make this a perfect dessert, pretty enough for company but simple enough to throw together when you want something quick. Put it in a trifle dish to show off the layers if you're feeling fancy!

- 2 cups heavy cream
- 4 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup mixed berries, frozen or fresh
- 1 package graham crackers (or substitute nilla wafers or similar cookie)
- In a mixing bowl, combine milk, vanilla extract, and sugar. Using a hand mixer or whisk, mix until the ingredients are no longer liquid and the batter forms stiff peaks when the mixer is turned off. This will take 4-6 minutes depending if you are mixing by hand or with an electric mixer.
- Start by layering graham crackers on the bottom of an 8x8 dish. Layer the crackers in a single layer so they are side by side and cover the entire pan.
- Once graham crackers cover the bottom, add dollops of whipped cream to the top of the crackers, going carefully so as not to move the graham crackers from the bottom of the pan. The first layer is the hardest to assemble but once you have the graham cracker base down with the whipped cream the rest of the assembly is pretty straightforward.
- Next, add some of the berries on top of the whipped cream. You can use more or fewer berries, depending on your preference. I used a mixture of frozen berries but you can also use fresh sliced strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries. You could also use jam.
- Then add another layer of graham crackers to cover the berries and repeat with the whipped cream layer and berries layer until you have used all of your ingredients.
- Once all ingredients are assembled, refrigerate for 2-3 hours or overnight to allow the graham crackers to soften. Enjoy!
