Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract, or vanilla paste
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon sugar
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1 package vanilla wafers

Directions

To make the whipped cream, place heavy cream, sugar and vanilla in an electric mixer until firm peaks form. 

To assemble:

Place a single layer of wafer cookies at the bottom of a parchment lined pan; if necessary, break cookies to fill the gaps.

Next, spread an even layer of the whipped cream over the cookies, then top sliced strawberries followed by another layer of cookies. Repeat as necessary for desired number of layers. 

Cover the top with plastic and chill, overnight, in the fridge.

When ready, remove the cake from the fridge, decorate with more strawberries and serve.
