Quick and Easy Strawberry Shortcake

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 15 mins

This is so simple to throw together for a quick summer dessert. Tastes like a combination of strawberry shortcake and cheesecake, while being very light tasting at the same time. I have also made this with fat free cream cheese and "lite" cool whip with great results.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice sugar cookie dough.
  2. Place them on a cookie sheet, edge to edge.
  3. Bake as directed on the package.
  4. This will bake together to form a solid cookie crust.
  5. Mix cream cheese, cool whip and powdered sugar until smooth.
  6. Spread over the cooled cookie crust.
  7. Mix glaze and berries together and spread over cream cheese layer.

Very Good and Super Easy! My kids absolutely love it. The cookie crust adds a little extra goodness. I loved the cream layer, though. I only used one pint of strawberries and 1 container of glaze and it was perfect. Definitely should try!

this was a very simple and tasty recipe to make. I only used 1 pkg of strawberry glaze though instead of the 2. This would be great for get togethers. Thanks for posting it.
