Okay, so this isn’t like a homemade shortcake recipe. But it IS a super fast, easy, and relatively low fat dessert that everyone in our family loves. So I’m gonna share it.
- Sliced Strawberries
- Cool Whip (lowfat)
- Sponge Cake or Pound Cake (Sliced)
- Place one slice of pound cake on a plate and top with a dollop of whip cream and a few strawberries. You could stop right there, but why? We like to go for one more slice of cake, another dollop of whip cream, and a few more strawberries. And that’s it! Seriously easy, light, and supper yummy!
Alternate idea: Add a teaspoon of sugar to your sliced strawberries and allow the to set for a few minutes to create a more juicy strawberry topping.
I hope you enjoy our simple family dessert.

Oh, I know what I’m making for dessert tonight! YUM!
Looks delicious! I tried emailing you, but I’m not able to on our computer without having an email account through our iMac, so I’m hoping you’ll read this instead! I recall you mentioning earlier this school year that you were planning to use The Mystery of History. I wondered if you ended up following through with that and if so, how you like it, etc. I know you made timeline figures to go along with it. I am really having a hard time deciding what to do for history next year for my K and 2nd graders. Anyway, I would love to know more, but I realize you are a busy lady and answering all of our questions probably isn’t at the top of your to do list! 🙂 Thanks for all of your useful ideas.
I can’t wait to make this for my youngest. It will be his “surprise” for Monday’s lunch.
