An easy yet very impressive dessert that will please young and the not so young. The choice of using orange juice for children is my best tip but apple juice also works just as well.
Wink Wink …why not make two ..one for the children and an adult version as well.
Seasons Greetings ..Have a Joyous Christmas and All the Very Best for the New Year EVERY ONE.

Ingredients (serves 8)

  • 1 packet of Butternut Snap Cookies
  • 1 300ml bottle of lactose free cream (for whipping)
  • 1 250g tub lactose free spreadable cream cheese
  • 2 heaped tablespoons icing sugar
  • Gentleman Jack Whiskey or Grog of your choice
  • Blue decorating sugar
  • Chocolate filled Silver Pearls
  • For the youngens :
  • omit the grog and use Orange Juice in its place.


  1. Use an electric beater to beat the cream, sugar and creamed cheese in a bowl until firm peaks form.
  2. Pour a little Grog into a shallow bowl.
  3. Spread a little cream mixture onto the base of a serving plate, then quickly working with one biscuit at a time, dunk into grog and then spread a little of the cream onto the biscuit, stand in the cream on the serving plate, repeat and then sandwich with another biscuit. Continue repeating this step until all biscuits have been used and form a log.
  4. Spread remaining cream mixture over log to cover entirely and sprinkle with decorating sugar and silver pearls. Cover loosely with foil, then place in refrigerator to set for a good few hours.


1/ I prefer to use silver pearls instead of the old fashioned silver cachous ...these new pearls are way more gentle on your teeth. 2/ To create a beautiful stripy pattern, slice on an angle. 3/ I used butternut snap biscuits for my recipe but you can use chocolate ripple or for the gluten intolerant folk any gluten free biscuits ...experiment and have fun and MERRY CHRISTMAS.

  • Love your Gog Log,l bet it tastes amazing,thanks!


  • Thank you for this, so helpful for those with food intolerance.


  • Fantastic to share over Christmas, thanks.


  • You have made my job so easy to find all the ingredients in particular section and store. I love your silver pearls on top of it. Looks great. Well done.


  • yummo – thanks for sharing both versions :) I love that you have made this with lactose free cream and cream cheese – I didn’t know that was even available – my sister in law will now be able to eat it too :)

    • Hi taynik45, thanks for your lovely comment. I have to be careful with brand names on the mom site but the cream is made by the same company that make the lactose free milk…it is sold in both Woolworths and Coles but Coles only sell the light version that is only suitable for pouring the full fat version is for whipping and is sold at Woolies.
      The lactose free cream cheese is made by a company starting with L and the song ding dong dell will remind you, it is sold at both Coles and Woolworths. You may also be interested to know that there is an ice cream available for lactose free folk ..it only originally came in vanilla but now there is a new one: cookies and cream it is found in the freezer section with all the other ice creams and is in both Coles and Woolies..the company starts with a P. Hope this helps and wishing you and yours a great Christmas.


  • This looks and sounds amazing – will definitely be trying the adult version! Thanks for sharing!


  • I don’t think I’ve ever seen chocolate filled silver pearls. Where do you get them?

    • Hi mom90758 these silver pearls are found in the baking section of Coles and Woolies …where you find all other decorating items …now how can I be diplomatic without actually mentioning the name and braking mom site rules..lets just say they are made by a well known company that make pizza and it has Dr at the start of the name.
      If you google chocolate filled silver pearls ..the first thing that appears are images and the 52g bottle appears ..the web site is underneath.

      • Thank you so much for your explanation!! I Googled and found immediately what you meant. They must be much tastier than the cachous, that are incredibly hard to eat. Thank you. I will try it!! :-)


  • Thanks for this recipe for a delicious looking Christmas Log – I particularly like your wink, wink tip – one log for the adults and one log for the children. :)

    • Thanks for your lovely comment mom93821. Actually I must have been a little heavy handed with some dipping of biccies when I made this one as every now and then you really would get a potent hit. lol.

      • You are most welcome! The perfect recipe for me then! I do love it when you get a potent little hit in a dessert. I am fairly liberal with ingredients in my recipes at Christmas time too.
