This makes a pretty dessert for Christmas.  Cool Whip can be used for whipped cream frosting.  It is  more stable than whipped cream and will allow frosting the cookie stacks several hours before serving.  Refrigerate after frosting the cakes.  The unfrosted cookie stacks can be stored two days in refrigerator or frozen for one month, making this a great make-ahead dessert.
