My grandmother had a really awesome dessert called Zebra Pie. It's so easy to make, and it's a nice light dessert after a huge meal.
Makes 12 servings.
2 cups heavy cream, or 1 8oz container frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 tablespoons granulated sugar, if using heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, if using heavy cream
1(9oz) pkg of Nabisco chocolate wafers
Chocolate curls, chocolate sprinkles, or halved maraschino cherries.
If using heavy cream, whip the cream until very frothy; add sugar and vanilla extract, and continue whipping until fairly stiff peaks form.
Spread one half tablespoon whipped cream or topping on each wafer. Begin stacking wafers together (on a long oval or rectangular serving platter) and stand on edge of platter to make a 14-inch log. Neatly frost with remaining whipped cream or topping. Chill for four to six hours, or freeze, covered with plastic wrap - thaw in refrigerator for one hour before serving. Garnish with chocolate curls, chocolate sprinkles, or maraschino cherries, and slice at a 45 degree angle so each serving has zebra stripes.
