  • 2 1/2 cups milk

  • Fold the whipped cream into the pudding mixture. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Grease a 13x9 inch dish and add a thin layer of pudding mixture onto the bottom.
  • Add a single layer of graham crackers on top. Break the cookie if needed to fit the dish.
  • Spread a 1/2" thick layer of pudding mixture on top of the graham crackers to cover using a spatula.
  • Arrange 1/3 of the berries on top of the pudding layer.

Notes

  • Make sure your cream cheese is softened before cooking.
  • Don't cut into the cake right after you assemble it, as it needs to sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours to firm up.
  • You can place it in the freezer for 30 minutes before serving and it'll keep the shape even better.
