Hi there! How is everyone? Hope you are having a wonderful summer. It’s Gina from Kleinworth & Co. & I’m back today to share one of our family’s favorite no-bake treats, Blueberry Ice Box Cake. I love making ice box cakes because of their simplicity. How can you go wrong with something that is so quick to make & yet so delicious? I tend to make these quite frequently this time of year because I am also making an abundance of pie filling. Oddly enough we typically use pie filling for just about everything but pie. It’s so easy & a great way to use all that fruit from your garden. It certainly is a delicious addition to this ice box cake.

Now there are many different ways to make an ice box cake. Most of the time I go with a graham cracker as the crunch layer. But this time I wanted a round cake, so I mentioned to the hubs that I would love for him to pick me up some sort of thin wafer type cookie to use. I had a thin gingersnap or lemon cookie in mind. But he came home with these thinner style coconut macaroons instead. It wasn’t what I had in mind but really turned out even better than I originally hoped.

After whipping up the creamy filling it’s really as easy as layering it all together & letting the refrigerator do the rest. Just cookies, cream, pie filling & repeat until you reach the top of your pan. Then you just pop it in the refrigerator to let the the cookies soften for a couple hours & it’s done. I told you it was SO EASY! I guess that’s why we make these again & again.

The flavors of the coconut in the cookies with the creamy spread & blueberry pie filling all come together so nicely. It’s absolutely delicious. We will be making this version again & again.
