Icebox Cakes: Easiest Summer Dessert
The wonder of the Icebox Cake is that you layer cookies or graham crackers, whipped cream, and some type of flavoring (syrup or fresh fruit) and stick it in the icebox, aka the refrigerator. After a few hours, the cookies absorb the moisture from the fruit and cream and develop a cake-like texture. You can have your cake without even baking!

Keep the humble icebox cake in mind this summer as you plan your parties, festive meals, and easy everyday dinners. It’s simple and delicious.
