Kelli's Berries & cream in a Cookie Shell...

this is the dessert that jess made last month for recipe club.  it was so fabulous i can't even describe it... you'll just have to make it!  the cookie is sweet & crisp, the berries are tart & juicy & the custard is perfectly creamy to balance it all out!  definitely a keeper!  

*also a great make ahead dessert.  just make the cookies & custard ahead of time & then assemble just before serving.  easy peasy!
