5-Minute Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberries are in abundance! They are plump, juicy, sweet, and oh so cheap! By the way, did you know that strawberries are closely related to the rose family? So are blackberries, raspberries and boysenberries. So I guess this is a "flowery" dessert. ;-)

I wouldn't really call this a "recipe" since all I did was put ingredients together. It would take 5 minutes (or less!). Easy peasy. I love that the whipped cream was not so sweet, and it lessened the tartness of the strawberries. It was so good that I had it for breakfast! 

What you need: 

12 dessert shells
12 medium-sized strawberries
8 oz Cool Whip

What to do: 

Rinse the strawberries and dry with a paper towel. Slice into 1/4 inch thick slivers. Place on top of dessert shells and top with a dollop of Cool Whip. Enjoy!

Tips, Tricks and Tweaks: 

1. Can't find dessert shells? Try it on pound cake!
2. Use other fruits - mango, blueberries, etc!
3. Drizzle with ice cream topping. Mmmmmmm!
