What is an icebox cake?
An icebox cake is one that requires a fridge, not an oven, to work its magic. Layers of a creamy filling and cookies chill overnight together, which sets the filling and transforms the cookies in soft cake-like layers. Icebox cakes are easy to assemble, and the hardest part is waiting for them to set up in the fridge.
There are many different variations of icebox cakes. Some use whole cookies, while others use cookie crumbs. They also vary in size, shape and flavors. There’s no one way to make an icebox cake!
