Berries 'n' Cream Torte Recipe

It's so easy to see why this fruity dessert always impresses dinner guests. I sometimes substitute the berries with sliced bananas.—Tina Sawchuk, Ardmore, Alberta

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened

"Also, because there is so much cream, I put an extra layer of cream on top of the berries before the next layer of cookie. It holds it together better and softens the cookie just enough so it won't crumble."

"I used a 9 inch round cake pan so all the cookie layers were exactly the same size. It was a hit for our company cookout :)"
