Easy Strawberry Shortcake Stacks

Strawberry Shortcake Stacks, simple and cute dessert for parties or everyday celebrations!

Oh, Monday, we meet again! Actually, I happen to love Mondays because my husband is off of work. He’s an assistant golf pro so weekends (and most weekdays) are golf-golf-golf, especially during the peak seasons. Mondays are our “weekends” so to speak. I hold down the fort (aka George & Blakely) on the typical weekend days. So since today is our “weekend”, we’re celebrating with Strawberry Shortcake Stacks! Aren’t they darling?

My Mom moved to Dallas after college (where she met my Dad and where I was born) and frequented a cute little tea room that served these amazing strawberry shortcake stacks. She said all the women would “ooh” and “aah” over them, naturally, because they taste amazing and look so cute. So she made me a batch, and I knew I had to share them with you!

The cookie part is firmer than a typical strawberry shortcake which seems to be a bit more “biscuit” like. I prefer the cookie version. It doesn’t get soggy! Now I used strawberries for a traditional strawberry shortcake, but this dessert would be just as amazing with peaches, blackberries, cherries, etc. Sky’s the limit!

And if you really want to impress your Mom, make some for her for Mother’s Day!

Another fun idea? Gift these to a friend or neighbor. You’re probably thinking “Great idea, Courtney, they’ll be all toppled over by the time I gift them thus they’ll look like a mess”. I got you! Package the cookies up in a cute cellophane bag, the whipped topping in a mason jar, and sliced strawberries in another mason jar. Place together in a little basket and tie with red ribbon. How cute?!

For the Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

Notes

  • Freeze the bowl and whisk prior to making the whipped topping.
  • Experiment with different fruits!
