Easy Strawberry Shortcake
I believe in making easy, cheap and yummy recipes. This Strawberry Shortcake recipe took under 5 minutes. I even had little helpers and it was still quick and easy.I found it to be a treat that my children enjoyed and also one that you could whip up for someone older. It is also an amazing food for a party for adults or for children at their school especially for Valentines Day.
You will need a package of lady fingers. They are found in the bakery and retail for less than $2.00
Then you will need cool whip or whip cream. The cool whip was $1.00
The last ingredient is the strawberries. You can buy fresh or frozen. We paid just $2.00 for ours
You can add bananas, coconut, chocolate chips, honey, other berries, pineapple, or white chocolate chips.
This would be a great activity at a chid’s party. They could make their own Lady Finger Dessert.
You will need open your lady finger and place some cool whip on one side of the lady finger.
Then you will wash and cut your strawberries. I tried to make mine look like hearts. Then I simply places them on the cool whip on the plate.
I closed the top of the lady finger and placed them as fancy as possible. I garnished my plate with a huge fresh strawberry and I served my cheap and easy Strawberry Shortcake.
I feel that this recipe can be made with a child 18 months and up. The parent will need to cut the berries but the rest of the process is safe and easy. The children will enjoy eating this treats as much as creating it. This is a family favorite and I am sure it will end up being sent to school for a class party since it is cheap, quick, easy, and yummy!
