Some friends & I (in our own kitchens, in our different cities) are cooking our way through the Barefoot Contessa's new book, How Easy Is That? This was our 2nd recipe. My conclusion: MEH; Hubby: "It was all right." In all fairness to the Contessa though, Hubby is not big on whipped cream, and I've never been big on icebox cake. I mean, where's the icing??
Pic below depicts the cereal box liner that I used instead of parchment paper to line the bottom of the springform pan. Also, in my effort to buy less aerosol spray cans, I now use a brush dipped into oil instead of Pam for greasing pans, etc.
