the most important step in this recipe is locating a long thin pan that can be used in the freezer. i use Mario Batali's cast iron side dish which weighs five pounds, but is the perfect size and shape for this recipe.
to begin, prepare the whipped cream or use frozen whipped topping for the recipe. then, add 1 teaspoon all natural flavor. i use almond, lemon or orange flavor. i have also used cherry and hazelnut. any of these flavors works well. when the whipped cream is ready to use, assemble the cookies one after the other with whipped cream in between. align in the dish in a roll, which has been lined with foil wrap,and gently push together. cover the top of the chocolate roll with the rest of the whipped cream and decorate with sprinkles. cover the roll with the foil wrap and place in the freezer for at least 4 hours prior to serving.
when ready to serve, remove from the freezer about 20 minutes before serving.
slice between the cookies and serve with coffee or tea.
easy, quick and oh so good !
