Welcome!

My name is Bronwyn and I am so glad you have stopped by for a visit. I hope you find joy and inspiration in everything you see here. I live with my family in a new, builder-grade townhome in a small city, even though my dream home would be a century old farmhouse in the countryside. Daily I strive to add warmth, "age," and character to our little home. I love to knit, crochet, sew, decorate, bake and go thrift shopping. These are all a wonderful release after my three small children are off to bed each evening. Thankfully, I have a patient and understanding husband, Kevin, who allows me to bring all kinds of crazy things into our home in the the name of "creativity."

Easy Creamy Cookie Stack

Summertime and the living is easy!

The first month of summer vacation is coming to an end but I dare say we have packed a lot into it!! And to think -we have 5 more weeks before we all return to school - hubby and I to teach and ALL THREE kids become students again (even my baby who starts JK in September!).

The other day we popped by the Mill Pond here in our little town.  The kids love it here. Ducks, fish, bridges, rocks, bugs and converted railway trestles - all ready for a few hours of play! 
And the weather was perfect! We have been experiencing wicked-hot weather here in Ontario - 35 degrees ++ Celsius with horrible humidity.  On this particular day there was a cool breeze, light wispy clouds and a temperature of 24 degrees. A flawless day for a walk around the pond.  


Now for the recipe I promised in my title:


And it really couldn't be any easier!!

1.) Bake (or buy like I did!) 25 cookies.  


2.) Whip 500ml of whipping cream into fluffy peaks.  Stir in 1/2 cup icing sugar and 1 tsp vanilla.

3.) Begin stacking the cookies on top of cakestand  or plate.  The bottom tier is a  circle of 5 cookies with one in the middle.  


4.) Dollop  3/4 cup of whipped cream on top of the cookies, spreading it so that oozes between the cookies. 

5.) Continue stacking the cookies, overlapping them on the spaces in the previous tier.  Add more cream between the layers.  


6.) After all of the cookies have been placed, add more cream and then pile sliced strawberries on top.

7.) For extra decadence, drizzle the stack with chocolate sauce.

Mmmmmm.....


And what did my dinner guests think?  I think these photos speak for themselves!
Ethan gives it the "finger-lickin" thumbs up!

Pregnant Tamara couldn't wait  to jump in!
And my oldest son was willing to put down his LEGO Hero long enough
 to eat two servings!

I am sure you'll find this recipe well worth all the time it takes to make (which is approximately 15 minutes at the most!!)
To speed the process up even more you could substitute a tub of Cool Whip in place of the whipping cream.  

Enjoy!!
