We think of the classic icebox cake being made with chocolate wafer cookies and a whipped cream filling, but Fine Cooking magazine has some updated icebox cake recipes on their website right now — ginger cookies, mascarpone cheese, lemon curd, mmmm.

Unfortunately, only two are available without a subscription (and sadly, the coffee and cream one on the left isn’t one of them).
