Cookie and Cream

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by LAURIE

This is not the usual cookies and cream but a quick, easy, lighter version of a shortcake type dessert that you can vary which fruit you use or even which type of cookie you use. I usually have frozen, baked cookies in the freezer and can pull them out, thaw and make this dessert in minutes!

This dessert was so incredibly easy and delivered a wonderful combination of flavors. The subtle lemon flavor complimented the raspberries perfectly. DH and I enjoyed it. My children don't really like sour cream, so they just had cool whip on theirs. I love that this comes together so quickly and tastes so good. This will be perfect when I need a quick dessert to serve. Thanks so much for sharing it!
