Strawberry Shortcake Trifle = A Huge Hit

I’ve made this several times and every time it’s been a huge it!  Everyone loves it because you can enjoy it after a meal that is filling.

Here is the beauty….

A quote from my 5 year old nephew “This is the greatest dessert on earth”.

I love trifles and this one has to be at the very top of my list!  Try it before summer is over.  You’ll be amazed!

Here is the simplicity of the trifle:

All you need is:

2  (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1  (8 ounce) container sour cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1  cup Cool Whip, thawed
4 tablespoons sugar
1 angel food cake, torn into bite-size pieces
2 quarts fresh strawberries, thinly sliced

Here are some thinly sliced strawberries.

Make sure your strawberries are sliced thin.

All you do is:

1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until
fluffy; add sour cream, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and the almond extract;
set aside.
2. Fold the cool whip into the cream cheese mixture.
3. Gently stir in cake pieces; set aside.
4. Combine strawberries and sugar, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
5. Layer in a large glass bowl, starting with 1/4 of the strawberries, then adding 1/3 of the cake mixture.
6. Continue layering; finish with strawberries.
7. Cover with plastic wrap; and chill several hours.

It’s so dang good!

Oh meeeeeeeee.

So good!  My five year old nephew said “This is the greatest dessert on earth”.  Also, below is my one year old great nephew enjoying its deliciousness.

This is my great nephew enjoying his!

Go make it now while the strawberries are still somewhat fresh!  You won’t be disappointed, I promise.
