Strawberry Shortcake Dessert

I have been using this glorious recipe for 30 years. These homemade shortcakes are delicious, light, and fluffy, so light that the juice from the strawberries soak right in to them.


I don’t think there’s anything better at Summertime then fresh strawberry’s smothered on top of homemade shortcakes, topped with cool whip.

This is a perfect Summertime dessert to serve, well, anytime really. When strawberries aren’t in season you can use frozen strawberries.


The shortcakes couldn’t be any easier to make. This is a perfectly quick go-to dessert for friends or just for yourself!

 For the strawberries you just dice up fresh or frozen strawberries and add some sugar. Mixing it well to release the juices from the strawberries.

When the strawberries are poured onto these light and fluffy shortcakes, the juice soaks into the shortcakes giving them a delicious strawberry flavor through and through.
