Ginger Cookie Cake

This is a pretty and delicious recipe for any special occasion. It's easy enough to put together, you can let your children help. I found this recipe in a grocery store newsletter.
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream 
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup, divided
  • 35 crispy gingersnap cookies
  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries or blackberries
  1. Whip together cream and 2 tablespoons maple syrup until stiff peaks form.
  2. Divide whipped cream into 5 equal portions.
  3. Spread 1 portion whipped cream onto your serving platter.
  4. Arrange 7 cookies on top of the whipped cream sides touching, 6 to form a circle and 1 in the center. Cover with another portion of whipped cream. Leave edges of cookies uncovered.
  5. Repeat until you have 5 layers, staggering cookies in each layer. You will end up with whipped cream as the top layer.
  6. Cover and refrigerate at least 6 hours. The cookies will soften and become cake like in texture.
  7. Just before serving garnish with raspberries and blueberries, or blackberries. Using all 3 fruits would be tasty as well.
  8. Drizzle remaining tablespoon of maple syrup over berries. 
  9. Serves: 8 - 10
