I just imagine some sort of heavenly light shining down upon this cake. Apparently, the cookies sort of soften and become easy to slice. The only things that can make chocolate cookies better than they already are is mascarpone cheese and whiskey, and this cake has it all. Recipe and image via Martha Stewart.
4 cups cold heavy cream
8 ounces mascarpone cheese
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon whiskey (optional)
8 dozen chocolate chip cookies (2 1/4 inches, baked until crisp)
Chocolate shavings, for garnish
