The thought of bringing a box of store bought brownies made me crazy. Honestly though, I have come so far as to do JUST that a few times. I'm getting easier on myself. Part of my "learning how to say no" phase of life. I think I could start a whole blog series with that one. Anyway, a story for another day. ;)
I like to cook, but I also like to not stress myself out. I was going to my sisters house a few weeks ago and I told her I would bring dessert. Of course that weekend was full of swimming, karate, horse riding and etc. You get the idea. So low and behold it's Saturday night and I hadn't even thought of what I was bringing. I love trifles. They are usually pretty to look at. The dish can be found at Walmart or Target for about $6 - $10. I think Pampered Chef has a fancy one that has a cover and all. For much more money of course. They are usually just layering ingredients and fun to scoop out too!
I usually make strawberry shortcake with homemade biscuits (and every blue moon homemade whipped cream!) because it's my dad's FAVORITE dessert. :)
It doesn't take anytime at all to throw together. Sometimes, if the strawberries aren't very sweet, I will cut them up and sprinkle a bit of sugar on them. Then I let them sit in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. But I didn't do that this time (they were sweet) and it was still delicious.
2 - packages of store baked biscuits
3- big packages of strawberries
1- 16 oz container of cool whip (I kind of ran out of cool whip, I would do another 8 oz or just get 2 - 16 oz for next time!)
layer them all! :)
Voila! Strawberry Shortcake Trifle!
