cowboy caviar. We washed it all down with two desserts: cookie cake and blueberry cobbler.
The post WWII American Favorite Cookie-Cream (or icebox ) Cake was made popular by Nabisco's Famous Chocolate Wafers.
It's not exactly made from whole foods or Daily Diner approved because of the amount of preservatives and additives in the cookies, but it's a family tradition (the whip cream is 100% real). Pops has had a piece of cookie cake every single birthday---63 years. I found this Washington Post article about the classic icebox cake--interesting quick read.
I loved the crust of my mom's Blueberry Cobbler, made with cream and butter, it tasted like a flaky version of a butter cookie. Too good.
Spread berries in ramekins or cobbler dishes.
Cut into pieces to fit cobbler dish, Flute edges with a finger and thumb to seal. Cut two vents into top crust. Brush milk on top of crust and sprinkle a little sugar on each cobbler crust. Bake until golden brown, 50 minutes for pie and about 1/2 hour for cobblers.
Put a pan in the bottom of oven because it may spill over when baking.
She added all the other ingredients next and rolled into a ball and placed in frig for 15 minutes. Then kneaded it gently a few times and rolled out on a lightly floured board. Too much flour makes it dry. Enjoy!!
Sunday- BBQ! (Happy Birthday Aunt Sheri and Pop's)
