With delicate cookie layers, sweetened whipped cream and fresh berries, it's easy to see why this fruity dessert always impresses dinner guests. You can substitute the berries for other fruits like bananas or peaches. I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website. Please note: time does not include 4 hour chill time.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture.
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or greased aluminum foil; draw two 9-3/4 inch circles on each. (If you have smaller baking sheets, you can do one circle per sheet and bake in batches.) Divide dough into four equal balls. Pick up one of the dough balls and shape it into a hamburger patty shape. Place the dough down in the center of one of the drawn circles and dust with flour. Press and shape the dough with your hands until the dough is within 1/4 inch of the edge of your circle. Put in oven as you continue making the other layers. Bake at 350° F for 8-10 minutes or unil edges are golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. Combine the sugar, confectioner's sugar and cornstarch. In a large bowl, beat cream and sugar mixture until stiff peaks form. To assemble: place one cookie layer on a large serving plate. Top with 1-1/2 cups whipped cream mixture and 2 cups of mixed berries. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining cookie layer and whipped cream mixture. Arrange remaining berries on top. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.
