16-18 Marie Biscuits 

1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

¼ cup Sweetened Condensed Milk

½ Tsp Vanilla Extract 


The Marie biscuits should be processed into tiny crumbs in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you may also place the biscuits in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin.

Pour the cold heavy cream into a bowl, then stir in the vanilla extract. Whip the cream at low speed first, increasing the speed progressively until soft peaks form.

Condensed milk is now added, and beating is continued until stiff peaks form. be careful not to overmix it or you’ll get butter that has been sweetened.

Fill a plastic bag with the whipped cream mixture, then snip off the bottom corner to make piping easier.

Start by adding the bottom layer of whip cream to the glass of your choosing. Then arrange the biscuit crumbs in alternating fashion. Continue the process numerous times, ending the final layer with whipped cream to completely fill the glass.

Refrigerate the desserts for 4 hours, ideally overnight, to allow the cookies to soften. Cover with plastic wrap.

Take it out of the fridge, then top it with your favorite toppings. Serve it cold.
