7 Icebox Cakes to Make This Summer
Lemony Layered Cheesecake
At the Nashville restaurant Pastaria, pastry chef Mathew Rice makes an icebox pie out of this classic Italian dessert. The crust is made of crushed ladyfingers, the filling is a coffee mousse, and each slice is topped with whipped mascarpone, as well as a crumble made from Rice’s homemade “coffee cookies.”
This layered cheesecake is crazily easy to make. Simply sandwich Nabisco Chocolate Wafers between a mix of cream cheese, chocolate syrup, and water. Then, stack the sandwiches and let the cake chill. As the cheese filling gets colder, the cookies will get softer. The end result is melt-in-your-mouth goodness.
