"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 :)"
