Maple-Waffle Icebox Cake

Getting reviews...
Waffles and maple syrup are a combination that deserve to be eaten beyond breakfast. We layer crispy butter-waffle cookies and maple syrup-flavored whipped cream and chill the ingredients overnight, which transforms them into a magically sliceable freeform cake.

  1. Combine the heavy cream, sour cream and 1/4 cup maple syrup in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium-high until stiff peaks form, about 4 minutes. Gently fold in the remaining 1/4 cup maple syrup by hand.
  2. Lay 6 cookies out on a large, flat platter in 2 rows of 3, making a rough 7 1/2-by-8-inch rectangle (they should touch but not overlap). Spread a quarter of the maple cream on top. Repeat to make 3 more layers of cookies and maple cream.
  3. Cover the cake loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 hours or up to 12 hours to soften the cookies. When ready to serve, sprinkle the top of the cake with the walnuts. Cut into slices with a serrated knife and drizzle each portion with additional maple syrup.
