This weekend BF bought a small box of strawberry's so I threw in a package of Hostess Shortcakes into the basket to make a dessert. Growing up, my mother would make this for us as a fresh dessert alternative to ice cream or cookies - which we ate a lot of because my Grampa was a HUGE ice cream and cookies fan. Last night I decided to make this dessert for Michael and I after Madilyn went to bed.
Strawberry's - as many as you want, they more the merrier!
2 Shortcakes - I used Hostess individual shortcakes
Whipped Cream - I used canned whipped cream, but a tub of whipped cream works even better
(depending on how sweet the strawberry's are, you might need to sprinkle some super fine sugar over them)
I placed one shortcake on the bottom, sliced up three medium strawberry's and layered them on top of the shortcake. I added a light layer of whipped cream, then placed the second shortcake on top of the whipped cream. I sliced up three more medium strawberry's and layered them on top of the second shortcake. I added a generous amount of whipped cream on top, then I sliced about 6 various sized strawberry's and placed them all around the base of the dessert. I placed one of the largest slices of strawberry on the very top of the dessert - mostly for decoration because they looked like hearts :)
