Start cooking our cake with all ingredients.

And also you have two variants of cream: custard and sour cream. For sour cream: one glass of sugar, 400 grams of sour cream, 200 grams of butter. For custard: two eggs, 300 grams of sugar, two tablespoons, 400 grams of milk, one packet of vanilla sugar, 200 grams of butter and cookies. You can use any cookies you like but the best if you choose shortbread, sweet cracker or oatmeal cookies.
Stir good all the ingredients together. You will have a uniform brown consistence. Now it is time to heat the oven to 175-200 degrees. Prepare baking dish (round or square) and pour all dough. Don't forget to use parchment paper, smear it with butter and sprinkle with flour. It helps to avoid sticking. Bake biscuit for 40-50 minutes on the temperature 175-180 degrees. During baking don't open the oven because it can provoke a fall of volume of the biscuit.
If you decided to cook the first variant of cream (sour cream), start to cook it. Take 200 grams of butter and melt it in the microwave. If you don't have microwave do it on the water bath. Mix butter with 400 grams of sour cream and sugar. Whisk good this mixture with whisk or mixer. Cream is done. You can smear shortcakes right now.
In case if you have chosen the second variant, let's cook it. While our dough is baking in the oven we have enough time to cook this custard. Take 400 grams of milk and bring it to boil. Meanwhile whisk two eggs with 300 grams of sugar and add gradually two tablespoons of flour. Don't forget to sift the flour because it gets saturated with oxygen.
Now take cookies and crumble up to create something like crisp. You can do it in blender, also you may take a potato masher and crumple up cookies with it. Sprinkle it on the top of the cake and put for 2-3 hours to the fridge. You can eat it right now but the cake won't be so succulent. It will get saturated and taste will be much better.
