LOOKING for:quick and easy no-bake desserts
This one's good, but it does have to be made a day in advance so it has time to set up. We like it with fresh berries - raspberries, blueberries and sliced strawberries are all good.

I think this would be considered "no bake" as I don't know many who bake ladyfingers and they are available in every grocery store in the cookie section.
2 egg yokes
5 drops vanilla
1C strong coffee
1T brandy (or 2!)
1T cocoa powder
2T shaved dark chocolate
Beat first 4 ingredients. Set aside. Dip ladyfingers into coffee mixture and layer in baking dish alternating with layers of cheese mixture, ending with cheese mixture on top. Sift cocoa on top and sprinkle chocolate. Refrigerate for 4 hours.
Here's an oldie that I really like. I've also seen it called Russian Cream:
SWEDISH CREAM (serves 8)
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup sugar
1 envelope unflavored gelatin mixed w/2 TBL water
2 cups sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
Strawberries or blueberries
Mix cream, sugar & gelatin in small saucepan. Heat over low heat until sugar & gelatin are dissolved. Remove from heat. Cool until slightly thickened, about room temperature. Carefully fold in sour cream & vanilla until all ingredients are well blended. Pour into a 1 1/2 qt mold (I pour into individual serving containers or old-fashioned wide champagne glasses.) chill until firm, 2 hours or overnight. Serve with strawberries or blueberries.~~Fare to Remember
Here's a bunch - I think they're all good!
Amaretti Ice Cream Balls
Recipe courtesy Rachael Ray, 2007
24 amaretti cookies
1/4 cup amaretto liqueur
2 pints vanilla ice cream
Crush cookies by hand or in plastic bag. Place onto a sheet pan. Dampen the cookie crumbs with the liqueur. Scoop ice cream balls onto the sheet pan and roll around until covered.
Place the balls into a serving dish and top with chocolate sauce and whipped cream.
This is a wonderful holiday dessert -- and soooo easy!
1 package lemon pudding (not instant)
1 package instant lime jello (or strawberry, or whatever flavor you want - Use strawberry for Strawberry Daiquiri Pie, banana for Banana Daiquiri Pie, etc.)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2-1/2 cups water
1/2 cup rum (more doesn't hurt it - I used dark rum and stuck to 1/2 cup)
2 cups Cool Whip (thawed)
Graham cracker pie crust
Mix the pudding, jello, sugar, add 1/2 cup water and two eggs. Beat well. Then add in the rest of the water and mix. Cook over medium heat until it comes to a full boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and add the rum. Let it cool for two hours -- it will thicken. Then add the Cool Whip and mix well again. Pour into the pie crust. Chill until set.

The alcohol in the rum evaporates since it is added to the hot liquid. I decorate the strawberry one with sliced strawberries and the banana one with sliced bananas. They look real pretty.
Barbara 52's Frozen Lemon Cream Sandwiches
one 7-oz container chilled creme fraiche
1/4 cup lemon curd
finely grated zest of one lemon
12 crisp butter waffle cookies
1/4 cup chopped unsalted pistachios
Line a small baking sheet with wax paper. In a chilled bowl, beat the creme fraiche with the lemon curd and zest until firm peaks form.
Arrange half of the cookies on the baking sheet and spoon the lemon cream onto the centers, letting it ooze gently to the edges. Top w/the remaining cookies, pressing down very gently. Transfer the baking sheet to the freezer and freeze the sandwiches until firm, at least 4 hrs.
Spread the nuts on a plate and roll the edges of the sandwiches in them.
(Can be frozen in an airtight container up to one week.)
Jules Destrooper Crisp Butter Wafers (from Belgium) are available from specialty shops in the US. They are, as their name implies, wonderfully crisp and buttery ...

Use any good brand of lemon curd. I used Nelson's, from England.

2 bags Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies
6 to 8 bananas, sliced
2 cups milk
1 (5-ounce) box instant French vanilla pudding
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

Chocolate Wafer Icebox Cake
(adapted from The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook)
3 cups heavy cream
3 tablespoons sugar (I used vanilla sugar, and more like 4-5 tablespoons of it)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract (I added one additional teaspoon of vanilla bean paste)
2 (9-ounce) packages chocolate wafer cookies (I used about 1 1/2 packages of Nabisco Famous Wafer cookies...you know, the ones that are like thin, unfilled Oreos)
Unsweetened cocoa or chocolate shavings (I used the latter)
In a large bowl, beat cream, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.
On a flat serving plate, arrange 7 cookies side by side in a circle, keeping 1 cookie in the center.
Spread with 1/2 cup whipped cream, making a 7-inch circle. Repeat with remaining cookies and cream, making 11 layers of cookies and ending with a layer of cream (there will be a few cookies left over). Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
To serve, dust top lightly with cocoa powder or chocolate shavings.
