Spice up your life with this simply prepared no-bake dessert that engages the flavors of ginger cookies and mandarin oranges in layers of whipped cream. A fun dessert to make ahead for gatherings.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 pint heavy whipping cream, chilled
- 1 (11 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained and liquid reserved
- 1 (8 ounce) package ginger nut cookies (biscuits)
In a medium bowl, whip the cream until stiff. Place a thin layer of whipped cream on the bottom of a 1 quart glass bowl, or baking dish. Dip 1/3 of the ginger biscuits into the reserved juice from the can of oranges one at a time, and place in a single layer over the whipped cream. Place about 1/3 of the mandarin orange segments in a layer over the biscuits. Repeat layers, soaking each biscuit in the juice, and ending with whipped cream on the top. Smooth the top of the dish with a palette knife or large spatula.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to let the flavors mingle before serving.
