if you have ever read my profile it claims that i am interested in baking. the size of my upper arms will attest to that fact. at times i see blogs about baking that others have written. they have beautiful pictures of food and they share about the process. today i was inspired.

this is a favorite cookie in the fairfield household. they are made every 4th of july. (every 4th that my mom remembers to make them, that is.) this year she forgot. last year she was in kansas. it doesn't always work out. and they can't be made last minute. no, they need to sit overnight. that's the key. but tomorrow is my mama's birthday, so i made these cookies for us to enjoy tomorrow. (it's still july, right?!)

first you will need to find yourself some plain chocolate wafers. (i can only seem to find them at von's, for those of you in california.)

next, you'll need some heavy whipping cream. simply whip your cream (i added a smidge of confectioner's sugar to the cream), and layer. repeat. and once again. top with dots.

this tasty treat has been aptly named "chocolate whipped cream, chocolate whipped cream, chocolate whipped cream with dots on top." (to be said rapidly.)

these must be refrigerated overnight. i repeat "must." they become soft and may be consumed with a fork.

these cookies are sure to be the party favorite. they will not disappoint!

well, i have given up on youtube. they think i've done something fraudulent by putting a song i downloaded from itunes on my video, so i can't play my video through them. therefore, i uploaded it to my mobileme gallery. however, mobileme cannot be embeded onto blogs. soooOOOooo . . . i have a link for you. please follow it; you'll be pleased.
this is our time at the lake.
