You know…any excuse I have to bake is just fine by me and with Labor Day coming up this weekend, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to whip up this Cookie Stack. Seems like I hadn’t made Chocolate Chip Cookies in ages! The boys {and Doug} were thrilled and enjoyed every last one.

The Cookie Stack is such a fun way to serve! With Chocolate Chip Cookies, Cool Whip and fresh fruit it makes not only a delicious treat but a beautiful display!

My vote is for homemade cookies, but you could certainly grab some from the bakery and put together this treat in minutes. And if you are heading to a cookout this weekend for Labor Day…even better!

Are you familiar with Celebrate magazine? I first spotted the Cookie Stack in their Summer edition. The Autumn edition is available now, it’s definitely a must read! The original recipe has a mixture of cream cheese, heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar, but I love Cool Whip plus it’s super easy!

Now…let’s chat about yummy desserts for you to serve at your Labor Day Cookout!
