I needed to have this recipe stretched just a bit, so I made it in a 9 x 13 glass roasting pan so the sides were visible, skipped the parchment and "dam."
I added another 1/3 c cream, just in case I didn't have enough, cream and I had some leftover, so I'm not sure if it was needed. But I did use more than (what is now an 11 oz, not 12 oz) box of cookies. I also split the whipped cream 50/50 for plain and strawberry and I have also added on occasion some cinnamon and/or cayenne to the strawberry cream.
Remember if you're making this on a hot humid day (likely) to chill the bowl and beaters before whipping. I only have a hand mixer, so it takes a little longer, so I sat the bowl in a roasting pan filled w/ice. Otherwise, making the whipped cream could be almost futile.
I have also made it in individual servings.
In response to the post about too much whipped cream, one can add a few more cookies, but I'd say make sure there are enough berries. I've had no complaints. It has been a big hit!
I love the easiness of this recipe, how adaptable it is and no heat needed!
Hi! Was wondering if cool whip could be used instead of the whip cream? Can't wait to make this dessert for our 4th of July celebration!
Loved the quick video. Watched it to make sure it was easy enough to do and IT WAS. Huge hit with my family. Berries and cream...a perfect hot summer dessert. We kept in fridge pulled out and served immediately...not a bit of melting. If I were to bring outside I would have frozen it first.
My daughter made this for a party and it was an absolute hit! Because it was soooo warm, we kept it in the freezer to keep it firm and pulled it out when ready to serve.
Everyone loved it! It was light and fluffy.
We would definitely make this again ~ but use black raspberries instead of blueberries. (Most of us were not blueberry fans!)

I made it for a 4th of July 2011 party. Soooo disappointed.
When cut it was like mush. Better to use a spoon to serve it.
Was mostly whipped cream so what can you expect.
Was expensive to make. Since mostly whipped cream not that much flavor. Will not do it again.
I think a cheese cake decorated would be so much better.
