Zebra Pudding

Inspired by Union, Trueheart and Courtesy' remembrances, I now present my grandmother's version of this classic, which differs from my old friend's by the addition of Jack Daniel's. My guess is that this was one of the few ways in which Jack Daniel's would cross my grandmother's lips.
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons Jack Daniels whiskey
  • 1 package Famous chocolate wafers*
Whip cream until stiff, gradually adding sugar and whiskey. Place one dollop on a cookie, press another on, sandwich-style, and set on edge in serving dish. Continue adding cookies until you have a long log. frost with remaining whipped cream, cover with plastic and chill overnight. Cookies will soften and become cake-like in texture. Slice diagonally; dessert will have a "zebra" appearance.

*For some reason, these cookies tend to be found in the ice cream cone section.

This is one of my husband's favorite recipes from his childhood. I've never made it with Jack Daniels, though. Wait until I tell him about that possibility!
