Gingerbread Icebox Cake

Homemade gingerbread cookies stand in for the store-bought chocolate wafers in the well-known version of this nostalgic treat, and are arranged in freestanding circles rather than in a loaf shape. A sweet-tart citrus topping provides another novel spin on this stunning icebox cake.




Cook's Notes

You will need a 2 3/8-inch fluted round pastry cutter or a standard round cutter. You can make the cake in advance and refrigerate it overnight; the portion of each cookie covered with cream will soften, making the cake easy to slice.
