Made with Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers, this delicious Icebox Cake requires no baking; simply assemble the layers of whipped cream and cookies, refrigerate, then top with more whipped cream and milk-chocolate curls. As its name implies, this cake can be prepared in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to a day before serving.
To use fresh pumpkin, halve and place a 1 3/4-pound sugar pumpkin, cut sides down, in a baking pan. Roast in a 400 degree oven until very soft, 50 to 60 minutes. Scoop out flesh and puree in a food processor until very smooth.
Be prepared to be wowed when you take your Pithiviers out of the oven: From the golden-brown sheen of its decorative top to the intoxicating almond aroma emanating from its frangipane center -- this cake just might become your new favorite.
