Peach or Strawberry Shortcake

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Darlene Summers

This makes a beautiful and quick dessert. Tastes as good as it looks too. It can be a no-cook recipe if using already prepared angel food cake, or cooking time is as on box of angel food cake you buy.

Top Review by Chris from Kansas

I am giving this recipe 5 stars because it tasted good and it came to my rescue. We were having unexpected company and my husband quickly threw together an angel food cake from the box. Well, I think he must have taken it out before it was completely done because when he turned it over, part of it fell out of the pan. We couldn't serve it that way, so I broke it in pieces into a 9X13 pan, spread some cool whip on top, then some peach pie filling and finally some toasted sliced almonds. It looked like it was meant to be! This recipe was my inspiration. Thanks for posting!
