Whip up this incredibly simple Five Minute Strawberry Dessert for any spring or summer celebration!
We had a quick little Easter picnic a few weeks ago. With the warm spring type weather and the gathering of family, I knew that the sweet dish I wanted to take needed to include fruit. I wanted something fresh in the dessert AND to keep it rather light (not to be confused with lite). Enter – STRAWBERRIES.
I almost want to say this is inspired by tiramisu, but the reality is it’s far from the coffee filled treat. One thing it does have in common is the delicate little ladyfingers. These cookie/cake bites are the perfect base to our cake, add some danish dessert with your fresh berries, and top things off with a good ol’ dollop of cool whip, and voila! Just like that you have got one perfectly sweet dessert fit to feed a crowd.
Of course, I had to ask the kid to rate it on a scale of 1-10. He gave it a solid 8, which is really saying something considering he is NOT a fan of fresh strawberries. I give it a 10. I could easily eat 1 or 2 (ok 3) servings of this delicate dish! The longer it sits in the fridge the better. The flavors seem to blend together in the most beautiful way. You’ll have to hold back from over indulging.

- 1 package strawberry Junket Danish Dessert
