Easy Dessert...

I have made a Strawberry Shortcake triffle now a few times when I needed to bring a dessert for something. It's really easy, and yummy, which is must. Tonight I am taking it to the preschools end of the year school wide party, as part of my contribution. I also get to bring another dish for my other child's class, which is mac and cheese. I like to sign up for things right away so I can do what I want and pick something easy.


1 block of cream cheese

1 big tub of cool whip

2 containers of strawberries washed and sliced

1/2 of a pound cake (if your feeling frisky make your own, but hello.... that would take freaking forever, so just be a slacker and buy a pre-made one at the grocery store.)

Mix the cream cheese and cool whip together well, then in a triffle dish layer cubes of pound cake on bottom followed with a layer of strawberries, and then the cool whip/ cream cheese mixture, and repeat until you reach the top. I like to do this the night before so it can sit in the fridge.

Yum!! I make almost the same trifle but instead of cream cheese I use the Philadelphia pre-made cheesecake filling (which I'm sure tastes similar). I love making this for bbq's in the summer because it's always such a big hit!! Hmmm.... I totally want some now!!!
